Our current show, Nudes, will end August 29. If you have a work in the show, please remove it by then so the photographers can hang their show for us. Photographers, the walls are yours from August 29 until October 2. Please bring your framed and ready-to-hang photos to the studio on or before August 29. Looking forward to September! Hope you will plan to participate!
Sadly, our secretary Eric Dulcet has had to give up his post at GVA and is moving to Niles, MI. Thanks, Eric, for your service! Who will step up to take his place at least temporarily? Please contact David Bechtel if you are interested. Also, many thanks to Ross McCrory, a new member of GVA, who has graciously offered to assume the task of assembling the newsletter.
As many of you know, Bill Kubiak was one of the thirty three founding members of GVA. After his passing in 2010, it was decided to pay tribute to his tireless efforts on behalf of the membership by paying for memberships of struggling artists. If you know of an artist that would like to join GVA but may need some financial assistance, please share their name and contact information with any of the Board members.
See paintings from Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio by Holly Sturges and Judith Tummino, August 11 till September 13.
If you want to have your artwork displayed at Bliss & Vinegar (888 Forest Hills Ave SE) it must first be displayed on the GVA website. The owners of the restaurant are interested in artwork of varying subjects and styles, but lean towards nature, fruits, and vegetables. Your work will be on display for approximately six weeks. Joanne Swann's wonderful reduction prints are currently on display. Stop in to see them and to enjoy a delicious, garden fresh salad! All Bliss & Vinegar questions should be directed to Marty Klar (616-813-7921). Please do not contact the restaurant directly.
