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.
