Art Center Sign

The Art Center "houses" a very active group of artisans including painters, potters, carvers, quilters and musicians.  The CVAA art center offers classes of all kinds and has regular exhibits at the center and participation in regional shows throughout the Northwest.  The CVAA has artists that are recognized locally and through membership in national art associations. The art center has many activities for the community that include a Carvers publication, regular events, plus original items on display for sale to the public.  With a membership of 150, this association represents a "slice" of our community.  There is always an open invitation for anyone interested to be a guest at our meetings.  Our meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday of every month.
