Hello, Members and Friends of GVAL!

Last season our meetings were all conducted on Zoom.  This year, thanks to several of our talented board members, we are able to offer hybrid meetings, which allow our members the choice of attending meetings either in person or virtually through Zoom. The monthly meetings begin at 6:30 pm in the Neely Room at HD South. If you are thinking about becoming a member, we would love to have you as our guest at a meeting so you can get to know us! For details and a map,

November 4th GVAL Monthly Meeting
We are excited to have Anton Nowels back as the presenter for our Monthly Meeting on November 4th.  Back by popular demand, Anton will build on last month's value demo by giving us a presentation around color and the importance that warm and cool have in creating time of day and mood.  CLICK HERE to see Anton's work.
Anton Nowels at the
 October Monthly Meeting
Our October Monthly Meeting was a great success!  Our presenter, Anton Nowels, did an amazing job demonstrating the importance of values. He used four values from black to white to demonstrate the huge part they play in telling the story of the painting.  In a landscape painting, the values can indicate the time of day and the weather, as well as the mood you want to create for the viewer.  You can find out more about Anton and his workshops HERE.   
Enjoy the GVAL Member Show!
