Note from the Director
Our fall lineup of classes and events is packed with both new and traditional offerings. A feng shui workshop is one of our new programs. It will help promote positive energy flow in your life. We are thrilled to welcome back awardwinning artist and educator Giorgia Talarico for a oneday pastel workshop. Come work with one of the most talented artists in our area.
The exhibition calendar features the work of another great local painter, Frank Wilcox. In conjunction with his exhibition, we are pleased to announce that this year’s MVCA Honoree Dinner will celebrate the many contributions of Frank Wilcox. Among his contributions, Frank has been a board and committee member, patron, volunteer, teacher, and most importantly, a great friend to the entire MVCA community. His good natured disposition is contagious. His classes are inspirational, educational, and full of great social interaction. Please come and help us pay tribute to Frank.
MVCA’s annual Great Art Giveaway is October 10. That’s the day we’ll be “giving away” 30 pieces of beautiful artwork created by the many talented artists of our area. Also, we’re delighted that the Syracuse University Brass Ensemble will return for a November concert as we kick off the holiday season in style. The details about all of these events and classes are inside this edition of Art Matters.
Please also be on the lookout for an upcoming survey we will be undertaking. We want to ensure that we keep our fingers on the pulse of our community; listening to feedback to help us understand our artistic and cultural environment. This will help us plan for the future. We hope that you will help us by participating in the survey. More details will be forthcoming.
