Hello artists and members of the Delaware Valley Art League,
We decided to proceed with our meeting on November 18, 2020 as an all virtual meeting after our speaker had cancelled due to COVID. The meeting was lively with lots of good information shared. We caught a picture of some of the participants, shown at left.
- Current News - There is no change in the status of our current physical exhibits nor do we expect one over the next few months due to the spread of COVID. On the plus side, I heard yesterday we sold another painting at Penn Med Valley Forge.
- New Feature - Indira Cariappa has started an activity to feature a DVAL artist on Facebook and Instagram every couple of weeks. We started with the board and will switch to regular members on an randomly selected basis. Giovanni Acramone is currently featured, check it out!
- Virtual Holiday Sale - The Virtual Holiday Sale is now currently underway. The Gallery is live and we expect to expand our marketing shortly. You can view the Gallery at here. There is still time participate. You can register at this link. We have added instructions for using Entrythingy on our website and demonstrated entering works for the sale.
- Future Planning - We have started discussing plans for 2021. We will have a Virtual Exhibit that will be juried with prizes. It is actually already set up. We expect to launch it in early 2021. We are also looking at the possibility of having a physical outdoor exhibit / sale in late spring. We are also going to plan some plein air events in 2021.
- Getting Your Input - We want to incorporate your interests and ideas into our planning. A questionnaire has been prepared. We are working on how to deliver it in a way that enables all of our members to participate.
- Next Meeting - Our next meeting is scheduled for January 20, 2021. Our presenter is Elaine Lisle, a phenomenal oil painter. There is a possibility that meeting will be all virtual. Elaine is experienced with presenting virtual demonstrations and workshops. We will keep you posted.
