Unfortunately, the building that the AVCA Gallery is currently located in has “sprung a leak”…. a big one. Thankfully no artwork was damaged thanks to our volunteer’s quick actions. However, AVCA has had to move our gallery out of our current location and put the next show on hold for now. We are very saddened by this turn of events but our Board and volunteers are very optimistic and already discussing plans for our future. If you have any ideas or happen to hear of any locations you think might be an affordable possibility for AVCA we would love to hear about it.
The new AVCA show will feature the theme “Freedom” and kicks off with an Open House on Friday, June 13th, starting at 6:00 PM. The AVCA gallery is located at 108 S. Division Street, Suite D in downtown Auburn.
The art intake day for this show is Friday, June 6th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. This show is the next one in our sequence of shows put on with the help of a guest curator, paid for by a grant from King County and the City of Auburn. Collect your thoughts on how your work reflects Freedom and write them down to share with our curator.
Crows and ravens that is! Six of our AVCA artists will be represented at Issaquah’s Crow/Raven: Magic and Mystery exhibit at the artEAST Art Center& Blakely Hall running from May 30 through July 12th.
Issaquah’s most intriguing murder of crows invites you to two art exhibitions and five public lectures celebrating all things corvid. The strange familiarity of crows and ravens has intrigued humans for centuries, inspiring mythic interpretation, artistic expression, and scientific inquiry. “Crow/Raven: Magic and Mystery” brings together these human responses to crows through two exhibitions and five public lectures.
