Successful Juried Fine Art Show

GVAL would like to congratulate the winners of the 2015 GVAL Annual Fine Art Show! Also, a big thank you to everyone who entered their artwork!
GVAL would also like to thank Joel Coplin for lending his expertise and judging our 12th Annual Show! We’d also like to thank Kayla Kolar at the Gilbert Historical Museum for her support and a great space in the Museum.
Also, a big thank you to our board and show volunteers, especially our Art Show Coordinator, Deb Randall, for putting together an awesome show this year!

Monthly Meetings

GVAL hosts a monthly membership meeting on the first Thursday of each month at the Gilbert Historical Museum in the C.W. and Modene Neely Room. The meetings start with an art critique at 6:30 pm followed by a presentation or demonstration at 7 pm. Members are encouraged to bring their “work in progress” pieces to the critique for feedback.  Plus bring your finished pieces to compete for “Artist of the Month”. The presentations vary but often feature a lecture by a prominent local artist.

Meeting location: Gilbert Historical Museum, 10 S Gilbert Road, Gilbert 82333 (located just south of downtown Gilbert). Click here for a map and directions »
