Welcome to the Gilbert Visual Art League
The Gilbert Visual Art League strives to increase artistic awareness and appreciation in the community and surrounding area and offers a venue for local artists to show their work. Membership comes with many benefits including monthly meetings, access to exclusive local venues and an annual art show.
GVAL hosts a monthly membership meeting September through June on the first Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm in the Neely room at the Gilbert Historical Museum.
Our meetings generally consist of:
- An art critique
- GVAL news and upcoming events
- An artist presenter/demo
- An Artist of the Month contest
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
