Happenings at VAL

The Visual Art League has been buzzing with activity this fall, from Bryce Lafferty’s 3D watercolor creations, to a three day Art Sale Fundraiser, including a wine tasting. The LISD Faculty exhibit, held every three years, filled two galleries for five weeks. Hope you did not miss it. A special “Hand’s On” workshop meeting in November brought live models/musicians, T-Roy and Candace Miller, to perform and inspire new works by members to be exhibited in the spring of 2010.

Opening on December 5, we present “You and Me and Everyone We Know”, works by Dallas artist Susan Giller, and “Zoomorphica”, an exhibit of Art Trading Cards from around the world, curated by David Mask. A VAL member show themed “Dirty Works” will run concurrently through January 16, 2010. January 22 marks the opening of the annual LISD student art exhibition, with special gallery hours of 1-4pm, Saturdays and Sundays only, through March 3, 2010. The opening reception for a display of ceramic work by Brenda Lichman and Alisa Holen, as well as members’ works inspired by the “Hand’s On” workshop will be March 20.

ArtTalk meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 pm. December 1 is the member holiday party, guest artist Susan Giller will speak on January 9 and Feb 2 we present a collaboration of VAL members Connie Nicholson, Louie Kruse, Bev Zerbe, Alice Brannen and Nell Elliott. In February, we will host Bill Daly’s framing demonstration.

“Acoustic Friday at the Gallery” continues every Friday at 7pm- bring your instrument, your sketchbook , or just your eyes and ears to enjoy the music and great art.

Art Trading Card free workshops with David Mask are held one Saturday of alternating months from noon-2pm. Bring your favorite art supplies and join us on January 23 and March 20.
