Sunflower Show 2019 – Image Collection

2019 marks the Blackstone Valley Art Association’s third annual Sunflower show, held at the Booklovers’ Gourmet in Webster in August! This beautiful show features delightful sunflowers from an assortment of our BVAA members.

Because the Booklovers’ Gourmet has limited space, for about 20 art items, we do a pre-selection process. We ask each member who is interested to send us a JPG of their sunflower. If we don’t get enough sunflowers by the deadline (in this case Mon July 22nd 2019 at midnight) we then ask people for more. If we get enough sunflowers, we’re set. If we get too many sunflowers – a problem we haven’t had in the past – we put it to a vote on Facebook.

Here are the entries we have received so far for the 2019 Sunflower Show. We will be updating this page as we approach the deadline. Contact Lisa with any questions!

CANCELLED – Carol Arnold Oil Painting Class – July 2019

CANCELLED – CONTACT CAROL TO DISCUSS THE NEXT CLASS.

Oil paint has been the medium of choice for a wealth of famous painters. Leonardo da Vinci. Claude Monet. Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Paul Cezanne. There is just something spectacular about the beauty of oil paint which captures the eye and the imagination.

Whether you’re a raw beginner or an experienced painter, this oil painting class will take you to the next level. It’s full of personal hands-on advice and a warm, welcoming atmosphere!

Talented painter Carol Arnold teaches a monthly oil painting class at the BVAA Alternatives Uxbridge Community Gallery! Carol is a member of Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik’s Putney Painters! All levels of painters are welcomed with open arms. The focus will be on drawing, edges, values and color. These are areas which a beginner can practice and an advanced student can hone to perfection.

Carol makes these classes fun and inspiring, while supporting you to the next level of your growth!

This monthly class usually meets on the first Thursday of every month from 6-9 pm. We are experimenting with other days to see how they work.

Cost:
The maximum class size will be 10 students, to ensure plenty of hands-on time for each one.
If there are only 1 or 2 students registered for a class, the class will be cancelled.
If there are 3 or 4 students, each student pays $20/hr for the class = $60 total.
If there are 5-10 students, each student pays $15/hr for the class = $45 total.

Invite your friends! Share the news! The more students which attend, the less you pay and the more fun it is to learn from each other.
