“A Taste of Color”

VIVA All Member Art Exhibition

August 8 – 25, 2007

VIVA presents “A Taste of Color” which brings together art from selected members of our four founding art organizations: Valley Artists Guild, Valley Watercolor Society, Women Painters West, and Collage Artists of America. Nearly 200 entries were winnowed down to the 85 on display; the quality of the work was universally high, with a wide variety of subjects, media and styles on display.

Every year or so, VIVA brings together all four of the founding organizations for a collaborative exhibition. We have highlighted each of these organizations and their members in separate exhibitions, but this combined juried exhibit gives all the members from all four organizations a chance to show collectively. VIVA is very proud to be affiliated with these extremely talented artists from four very diverse art organizations.
