Show Runs Through June 8

20+ Artists Featured & 100+ Guests at the Reception

We are thrilled to announce that our recent art show "May the Art Be with You!" was a tremendous success! Thanks to the incredible talent of our artists, the help of our new friends at Montgomery County Community College (MCCC), and the enthusiastic support from all of you, the event exceeded all expectations. The MCCC gallery director, Patrick Rodgers and a few of his colleagues worked tirelessly to hang the show for us and we are very appreciative. 

Unlike our member show or juried show, this show gave PVAC members the opportunity to showcase a body of work. Some members had as many as ten different pieces featured. The exhibition showcased an amazing array of artworks, from stunning paintings and sculptures to captivating photographs and mixed media pieces.

A reception which was held in the evening on May 23 and was well attended thanks in part to a new publicity initiative by Deb Nyman that provided individualized promo materials to each of the artists. The turnout was fantastic, with art lovers from all around coming together to celebrate creativity and support our local artists. 

According to show coordinator, Sharon Gross, "Over a hundred people came out for the reception! It was a great evening! Special thanks to Herb Breyer for providing the music and Cathy McIllhenny for giving the art talk. I want to also thank Mike Tomasso, Edna Rambo, and Dianne Cram for helping with the refreshments. Colleen Algeo took photos of the reception, the link to the photo gallery is below."
