Fall Show and Sale: Second Nature

The work is underway on our Fall Show & Sale on November 2-4 with the theme of “Second Nature”.  All WVAL members who participate are urged to enter at least one piece pertaining to this theme for a People’s Choice Award. This is in addition to the artwork entered into the show.

For those scratching their head on what “Second Nature” may mean it is simply our interpretation of nature from a second-hand perspective.  Actual nature is “First Nature” and our visual interpretation of it is “Second Nature”.

We are excited about all the possibilities.

Cool Art Show 2017

The Hottest Artists in Town will be at The Cool Art Show and Sale!

It’s our annual show and sale by all 40 of the best WVAL artists. Instead of holding it during the holiday season as we have in the past, we will hold it on July 7-8-9. A reception will be held on Friday evening, July 7th. Franko the Ice Man is coming to give us a live demonstration of how he converts a block of ice into our little penguin. How fun! How cool!  Throughout the weekend, we’ll be serving free shave ice. A special section of the show will be devoted to art that makes you feel cool, and these pieces will be voted on by the public for “People’s Choice.”  We have also dreamed up a little interactive game to get you involved with the art and possibly win a raffle prize.

Be sure to stop in and see how cool art can be! Here are the hours:  Friday, 10 to 7:30; reception begins at 5:00. Saturday, 10 to 5 and Sunday, noon to 4.

 ARTISTS AND VOLUNTEERS:  Please download the schedule  to see when you need to be at your coolest during the show.
