The plein air group has been having a fabulous summer. Each Wednesday, weather permitting, we've painted together at various locations around GR, such as Rockford, Lowell, the Thornapple River, Cherry Street, Frozen Creek Floral and Coopersville. We like to grab a bite afterwards for some socializing, too. The destination is always posted on the calendar on this website the night before, so you'll know where to find us.

Joanne Swann is compiling a list of our members who are participating in ArtPrize and are connected with venues other than GVA. She wants to make certain we are able to support all GVA members at whatever venue where they’re exhibiting. Please let her know where we can see your work.
