Welcome to the Gilbert Visual Art League

Sharon Hess 2018

Congratulations to Sharon Hess! She is GVAL’s January Artist of the month 2018!

The Gilbert Visual Art League offers a venue for local artists to show their work and strives to increase artistic awareness and appreciation in the community and surrounding area. Membership comes with many benefits including monthly meetings, access to exclusive local venues and an annual art show.

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 Community 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 »
