Lots of artists think big for ArtPrize, so Grand Valley Artists (GVA) has decided to go big by “Thinking Small”! Imagine the impact and media buzz a huge assemblage of small artworks will generate. We’ll be filling our 1600 sq. ft. gallery with artworks that each fit into a 16" x 20" black frame or smaller. What’s more, the working studio of GVA will be in full swing during ArtPrize with ongoing live portrait sessions and still life sessions for our members. The opportunity to see artists at work in our studio and finished art in our gallery makes the GVA venue a truly unique “art infused” experience for visitors. To attract even more art lovers, GVA will expand our hours beyond those required by ArtPrize. Consider, too, that because GVA is the lone sponsor of the annual Reeds Lake Art Festival, thousands of art enthusiasts will be learning about our ArtPrize venue this June. Among our over 200 members are many locally and nationally lauded artists. Join us as we celebrate our 60th year of creating and sharing art in the community. GVA’s professionally lit gallery is well suited to feature small-scale 3D artworks as well. Come hang with us. You’ll be in great company as we make “small” news!

GOALS FOR ARTPRIZE on RUMSEY STREET This is not a gallery space - it is a community driven venue that is focused on neighborhood culture and stories. We want to use ArtPrize as a tool to have wide audience in order to: (1) Center neighborhood residents, artists, and old members of St. Joseph the Worker Church in the site planning and development process of the Plaza Roosevelt project. (2) Honor and document the narratives that are crucial to the fabric of the neighborhood as it currently exists (3) Maintain the cultural and historic elements of the neighborhood during major development (4) Transfer decision-making power to residents and people whose voices are not always heard (5) Provide a new way for residents to access and interact with information about changes in their neighborhood (6) Artists are not being considered unless their work incorporates these themes and goals and is relevant to the existing community. Thank you for your interest.
