People with Creative Minds Really do see the World Differently.

What is it about a creative work like a painting that elicits our awe and admiration? Is it the thrill of being shown something new, something different, something the artist saw that we did not? The idea that some people see more possibilities than others is central to the concept of creativity. This was truly demonstrated at our recent Member Show. There are so many wonderful creative works being shared. The reception was a brilliant success with friendly comraderie and lots of idea exchanging. Oh and great snacks! I applaud everyone who participated and am grateful to our donors and volunteers who helped it come together. I really think our founder Charles R. Gardner would have been thrilled.

As artists, I think it is part of our wiring to continually look at things from different perspectives and then to explore ways to show that to the world. The leadership team is committed to this very concept with the goal of having those new insights show us the way forward. This newsletter is packed with interesting stories and photos that show you how the team is adding their creative thinking to enhance your member experience:

  • Our next presenter is a different kind of artist
  • A progressive donor has altered the future
  • A new easy to use website is underway
  • A new date and location for our summer picnic
New offerings are abundant in hopes of eliciting a little awe and excitement from you about PVAC. Also don’t miss the recap of the 60th Annual Member Show! Enjoy. NOTE: The newsletter’s summer hiatus happens July - August so keep this edition close. The next edition is scheduled SEPT/OCT - with a submission deadline of August 15th.
