We're taking additional baby steps toward fully opening the studio. Beginning Monday, May 17th, we will no longer require members to sign up in advance online to attend our Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday sketch sessions; plus, you won't need to sign a release form when you arrive.* We will ask you to wear a mask while in sketch unless everyone attending the session has been vaccinated and agrees to not wear them.
We hope to offer an additional evening short pose sketch session on the 3rd and 4th Thursdays of each month; however, before we can start this, we need a facilitator and someone to coordinate models. If you're interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of the wonderful entries in the Van Singel Show are available here for your viewing pleasure. Hope to see you in person at the "Off the Wall" event.
Grand Valley Artists has provided its members with SO many opportunities to gather and share our passion for art. If it has meant a lot to you, you might use that "Make a Donation" button on the left side of the screen to show the love. Or, you can send a check to GVA at 1695 Service Rd. NE, Suite 106, Grand Rapids, MI 49503. Without the Reeds Lake Art Festival, our main source of funding, we will deplete our funds. Help keep GVA strong! Make a donation today! THANKS!
Lowell Library has reopened and we're hanging new shows! Russ Barneveld's photographs go up in April for two months. I will hang my paintings for the month of June. Please contact me if you'd like to get on the list from July on.
If you have not already done so, please read about recent developments at GVA and respond to danaBdonnell@gmail.com. In order to make the best decisions, GVA leadership needs to know what GVA members want. Thanks!
