Welcome to the Gilbert Visual Art League

Gilbert Visual Art League meets monthly and strives to increase artistic awareness and appreciation in the community. GVAL offers area artists fellowship and support through professional artist demonstrations and multiple sales venues.

Due to safety concerns, we will be offering our members excellent online presentations in place of our October and November Meetings.  See our Calendar Page for updates. The Board is in contact with HD South and our members will be notified by email as plans unfold.
