Meetings: Board 5/1 • Crit 5/8 • General 5/15
We will be welcoming our own John Taggart who will be presenting tips & techniques for photographing artwork at the May general meeting.
If you're thinking of taking on a board position, why not apprentice with one now? The Workshop Chairperson is seeking a Co-Chair or Assistant to help with workshop preparation/organization and to learn the ropes of the Workshop Chair. This will be a good transition position to get involved and support the Mid-Valley Arts League.
Please contact John Taggart.
Show Your Work
We have a MVAL Gallery at the Live Oak Community Center, 10144 Bogue Street, Temple City. Stop by and have a look at the artwork our talented members have created.
This gallery is an important community outreach. MVAL Board is given a space for our monthly meetings in exchange for adding to the beauty and interest of the community center at the park.
There is space for 11 paintings. If you have interest in hanging your paintings at the Center please contact
Linda at 626-358-7178.
We will be selling raffle tickets for the June Scholarship Raffle at the general meetings.
As in the past, they are
$1.00 each and six tickets for $5.00.
At the end of the meeting one winning ticket will be drawn from the June drum for a special prize. The winning ticket and all other tickets will remain in the drum for the June drawing.
Displaying paintings for the drawing helps encourage ticket sales so if you have a painting ready to donate, please bring it to the meeting. We are also accepting donations of art supplies, art books, etc.
