Grand Valley Artists was founded in 1957 – it is one of the oldest art groups in the Midwest, and the oldest in Michigan. Not happy with the then-popular modern art focus of the local art community, Bill Kubiak, Armand Merizon, and Carl Forslund decided to start a group to focus instead on realism and traditional art. GVA has grown to be a place where artists of all levels and media are welcome to meet, discuss, learn, and grow. With over 270 members, we've come to embrace all styles – from representational to abstract to non-representational art, in all its forms – in our various sketch sessions, plein air sessions, photography sessions, critiques, and programs, as well as monthly workshops. GVA is proud to be a participating venue in ArtPrize 2020 at this iconic location again! We look forward to showcasing the work of many of our members as well as the work of artists we feel will add to the creative spirit of our organization.
