Please save the date for our next monthly meeting: Tuesday, September 9th at 7:00PM. Marie Lyndemere will be leading a demonstration of pastel techniques that are certain to be of interest to artists in the drawing and painting mediums. Don’t forget that our gallery is now located inside the Arcade Building at 222 East Main Street. Looking forward to catching up on what all the AVCA members have been up to this summer!
Pianos on Parade is back for a third annual parade celebrating art and music throughout Auburn! This temporary art project takes the shape of seven art-modified pianos that anyone can see and play. Previously only located in Downtown Auburn, the program has expanded to Les Gove Park and Lakeland Hills. Be sure to visit all the locations. Play our Pianos on Parade, take a photo or video and share it with all of Auburn!
AVCA member Mary Ellen Bowers has a piano on display at 101 East Main Street, outside of Nelson’s Jewelry on the corner of Auburn Way and Main Street. She was inspired by the majestic view from Auburn’s Centennial Viewpoint Park and created a torn paper collage to depict this impressive overlook. Using hand-painted paper, Mary Ellen recreated the view of Mt. Rainier and the park’s sculpture “The Long Look” (by Brad Rude.)
Check out all the wonderful pianos before they disappear on Monday, September 8th!
The new AVCA Gallery will be hosting it’s first open house tonight! Stop by 222 East Main Street, Suite F in downtown Auburn between 6:00pm and 8:00pm to check out our new space and see what the AVCA artists have been up to this summer. The gallery is located inside “The Arcade” building, so don’t be shy, come on in!

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.
