We now have an instagram account! )Yup. It’s spelled with a lower case “i.” You can find our account here: https://www.instagram.com/grandvalleyartists/. We can use instagram to promote events and artwork. If you want to share something on our social media accounts, either instagram or Facebook, you can email that info or photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or tag the account on instagram.
We would appreciate member assistance to get the word out about Reeds Lake Art Festival. Signs and postcards are available at GVA, and lawn signs will be available shortly.
Please pick up some signs and display them at your neighborhood retail locations (e.g., the grocery store bulletin board) and businesses as you are able. Your efforts will save us the expense of extra media advertising.
Have you wished you had more time to work on a painting? That the same model was available 3 sessions in a row?
GVA will now be offering long pose sessions featuring the same model 3 weeks in a row in the same pose, same outfit (or nude), for 4 hours/three sessions.
The first series will take place on these dates: Thursdays, June 29, July 6, and July 13, from 10 until 2 p.m.
This is open to members and non-members. The cost will be the model fee, which will depend on the number of artists present each day. Anyone is welcome to come to all or one day.
Reeds Lake Art Festival is scheduled for Saturday, June 17, 2017, from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. We are particularly excited about this year's event. We will have our GVA display area for members to show their work. The cost of $15 will get you a 3'x5.5' wire mesh panel upon which you can hang 2 dimensional artwork, which should be framed and ready for hanging. Please make certain your frames and matting show good craftsmanship.
June 10 – July 15
