GVA has always striven to create an environment for artists to learn, create, prosper, and to ultimately share their talents with the greater Grand Rapids area. This year is no exception. We have successfully sponsored the 53rd Reeds Lake Art Festival, a much loved art festival in West Michigan that includes artists from across the nation. GVA is, for the second year in a row, an ArtPrize venue, and is now located in the Water Treatment Building on 1101 N. Monroe NW, just south of Leonard Street. We have over 5,000 square feet of display space. We also plan to have our members inside and outside, painting, drawing, photographing and sketching during ArtPrize. This will show the public what we do as an art group and why Grand Rapids is quickly becoming one of the the Midwest's largest art communities. This year we also have one of the oldest participants in ArtPrize, Stuart Knickerbocker, a World War II veteran and local artist. We are proud to have him and 48 local and national artists displaying their work with us, most of whom will be on hand to answer questions and interact at various times with the public during ArtPrize.

St. Mark’s has a rich history dating back to October 6, 1836, when it was incorporated as an Episcopal parish in Grand Rapids, Michigan. At that time, Grand Rapids had only 500 inhabitants. In the spring of 1840, measures were taken to construct a suitable building. A parcel of land was donated at the corner now known as Division and Pearl streets. The present building was occupied in October 1848 and was consecrated on September 9, 1849. It is the oldest public building still standing in the city. Its features include walls made with stone quarried from the Grand River and the original, hand carved woodwork that is found throughout the interior.
