GSVA Young Artists’ Fall 2014 ExhibitionFriends and families gathered together on a surprisingly sunny afternoon to celebrate the GSVA Young Artists’ Fall 2014 Exhibition. The show included amazing artworks from GSVA Young Explorers, Teen Journey: Art of the Self-Portrait, Youth Journey: Art of the Self-Portrait, and Youth Journey: Ripple Effect. Upon entering the gallery, panels of bright colors adorn the studio space, inviting viewers to experience the last 10 weeks of creative artmaking. Artists proudly stood by their work, and cited their artist statements with confidence. While sharing cookies and other delicious snacks, conversations were enjoyed by all; the studio was alive with laughter, smiles, and heads held high. The show will remain on display until March, upon which time the Winter 2015 Art Show will nest into the gallery; inviting new bold, and creative ideas to fill the space. GSVA would like to thank the Granville Arts Commission and Ohio Arts Council for their continued support in our efforts.

PALS visit GSVAGSVA’s "Art of Giving" Family Winter Workshop participants made great art last weekend! They created large, colorful, and dynamic pieces of art to donate to the Food Pantry Network of Licking County for display. The food sculptures will be installed in their new indoor market location on 1035 Brice Road, Newark, Ohio. It was a pleasure to watch families take time away from all the hustle and bustle and create art together. GSVA will be sure to share photos once the installation is complete!
