Nancy Goff has followed through on Larry’s wish that his art supplies be shared with all of GVA. This Saturday, starting at 1:15, feel free to stop by the GVA studio and help yourself. Larry accumulated a HUGE stockpile of oils, watercolors, acrylics, brushes, pencils, charcoals, pastels, papers, tools, drawing boards, etc., etc., This is not a sale. All we ask is that you write a Thank You note to Nancy (blank cards will be on hand). If you feel inclined, you can make a tax deductible donation to GVA in Larry’s honor.
The theme for July's exhibit is art that connects emotionally with the viewer.
Be sure to swing by Bliss & Vinegar to see the works of jim Markle now on display. While you are there, grab a healthy and deliciously fresh salad. GVA is happy to have this wonderful partnership with B&V. Pay them a visit!

I joined GVA to take advantage of an opportunity to work with other artists. I had been taking classes with Dana Ziebarth in pastel. She thought all her students should join. I was amazed and intimidated with the talented artists that were members. There reputations preceded them. I had admired Kathleen Kalinowski’s pastel paintings in galleries years before she became my teacher, mentor and friend. I had known of Kathleen Bechtel's oil paintings long before I came to know her as the director of The Franciscan Center. She aided my artistic spirit more than she could know.
