Our Annual GVA Member Exhibit and Holiday Party will be held at our GVA Studio this year. If you wish to enter your artwork, it will be due at the studio on Saturday, December 3. This will be a juried show, and if your work is selected, it will be on display until Saturday, December 31. Please note that this year we are only receiving one entry per person so that there will be far less unaccepted works. As usual, the party will be on the second Thursday of the month, which is December 8th. Here is the application, which you should complete and bring with your entry.
When: Saturday, Nov. 5th, 4:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
Where: Grand Valley Artists (GVA) Gallery
The GVA Photography Group will show an intriguing collection of fine art photography and imaging including photographic composites, hand colored/black and white silver gelatins, tin types, collodions and metallic prints. Refreshments will be served. Free parking. We look forward to seeing you!
Next year's calendar of workshops is now available.
Our own Larry Blovits will be hosting a 3-day portrait workshop on November 11, 12 and 13. The cost for the portrait workshop is $225. which includes the model fee. Since the workshop is restricted to 10 people, early registration is recommended. Registration fee is $50. The balance of $175 Is payable the first day of the workshop. If the workshop doesn't meet the minimum requirement, the registration fee of $50 will be returned.
Diann's watercolors and mosaics are on display at the Flat River Gallery in Lowell during the month of October. Be sure to stop in and see her beautiful work.
I want to thank all GVA members for the beautiful get well card. It was so appreciated. I’m getting stronger each day. I will get my brace off in December. Miss you all, Carol Friend
