VIVA 2008 All Member Art Exhibition

“My Way”

July 30 – August 23, 2008

"My Way" 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. A total of 97 wonderful paintings and sculptures are included in this exhibition, 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.

Charles Borman prove to be an excellent juror who appreciated good art in all of the styles and media that VIVA’s four art organizations represent. He had a tough job culling 184 entries down to 97 wonderful paintings and sculptures on display.
