The open house for our latest show “New Beginnings” was held at the AVCA Gallery on Friday, February 2 and was a great success. At one point over 80 people were checking out the art! Here are some excellent photos of the event from Auburn Reporter photographer Rachel Ciampi.
Please join us for our February Meeting Tuesday, Feb 11th at 7:00pm where Ann Breckon will be back with her watercolors and talking to us about the benefits of studying other artists work and styles! This will be a great demo for any artist working in any medium.
This AVCA Gallery art show was curated by JM King and Mary Ellen Bowers and looks stunning! A new year has brought us wonderful new artwork to our Gallery and a few new faces to our membership. Original Art starts at just $18.00 and we have a great selection of cards and prints too.
If you are unable to make our opening please stop by anytime during regular hours (Thur & Fri 10-2 and Sat 10-4) Bring your friends and family for a one of a kind art experience!
The new AVCA show will feature the theme “New Beginnings” and kicks off with an Open House on Friday February 7th, 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 Monday, January 27th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Take a look at your work and see how it interprets the “New Beginnings” theme. It might be that the work itself is of a beginning, such as birth, a new love, any kind of beginning. Or it is possible that the work is a new stage for you personally, such as the first time you have used a particular medium, or the first time you have submitted to a show, or a new direction in your life/work.
We would ask that you come prepared with a sentence about your work as a “new beginning” as we will be adding these descriptions to the show to help our visitors understand the choices we have made.
