Acoustic Fridays at VAL

Acoustic Fridays - please visit the Visual Art League each Friday evening 7pm until the music stops.

Acoustic Fridays at the Visual Art League of Lewisville exist solely to bring together acoustic music and visual art for the pure enjoyment of the community at large. The founders are visual artists who also play instruments and love to jam. All players of acoustic instruments are welcome as well as those who appreciate musicians and artists. The Visual Art League graciously supports this endeavor by providing the gallery space based in part on a grant received from the City of Lewisville as recommended by the Greater Lewisville Arts Alliance.
