People with Creative Minds Really do see the World Differently.

by Colleen Algeo, President

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. 

“Others have seen what is and asked why, I have seen what could be and asked why not.” ~Picasso

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 camaraderie 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. 

AWARDED ARTISTS GROUP: Distinguished Awards: Sherry Ward & Lori Quinque-Quinn  Special Awards: Joan Ambrose-Bibbo, Barbara Brown, Koz Noruzi, Terry Souders, Susan Sowers, Debra Yerger, Donna Steich, David W Thomas  Professional Awards: Thomas W Benfield, Phillip A Smith, Susan Klinger, Kathleen Bohn.  Emerging Awards: Teresa Nicoko, Barbara Jones, Donna McGough, Sharon Moyer.  Not Pictured: Kathy Bohn & Philllip Smith

     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. New offerings are coming your way in hopes of eliciting a little awe and excitement from you about PVAC.  Here are a few more photos from our 60th Annual Member Show.
