Just about every artist I've talked to has one or two pieces that involve sunflowers. If you don't have a sunflower piece, we'll take whatever bright, colorful floral expression you have. Lets pack the gallery with a massive amount of color for February. All 2D and 3D art is eligible, including drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, photography, digital works, mixed media, fiber art, mosaic tiles, etc. All work must be original. No prints or reproductions please. This exhibit is not juried and the works do not have to be framed, only hangable.

The featured artist in February is our own David Thinger. Come and see a beautiful collection of David’s multi-media pieces. Guardian Gallery is at 671 Davis Avenue NW, Grand Rapids. It’s the second brick building from the basilica. Go to the doorway with the arched covering over the top and you will find a box with three buttons on. Push the button that has on it “Franciscan Life Process Center.” Push it and you will be buzzed in. This show will be up the month of February, March, April and May.

Until Larry Goff returns, Marty Klar has volunteered to coordinate the Cascade Library venue. There is a need for approximately 17 framed/hangable artworks/photographs starting in February. This is a three month commitment. The library will promote GVA/you on their FB page. A price list will be made available by you/me and will be kept at the front desk. Prices MAY NOT be displayed with the work. Artists wishing to display their work should contact Marty at 616-813-7921 or email@example.com. Currently there are four artists on display.
