Note from the Director
The first day of spring is March 20. The days will be warmer and filled with more daylight. The birds will be singing and buds will start appearing on the trees. With spring in the air, the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts is ready to offer a selection of exciting, creative, artistic, and enjoyable opportunities for all ages; for those who want to create art and for those who simply want to appreciate art. Please have a look through this edition of Art Matters to learn more about our new offerings.
We welcome Shannon Crandall as a new MVCA instructor. Shannon is offering Saturday workshops on beading (making a bracelet), wiring wrapping (creating earrings), and intuitive painting. Beginners are encouraged to attend.
We are also happy to add the talented artist, Lutz Scherneck, to the list of MVCA instructors. Lutz is offering a 4-week class that will focus around discussion and critique of art work. Energetic and thought-provoking conversations will be encouraged.
How about enrolling in a workshop that’s focused on helping you create and design your life? Have a look at Kelly Myszkowski’s redesigned 6-session workshop that will help you learn to think and see in more empowering ways.
We have many new things for you to see in our retail store, the Selective Eye. We've found wonderful creative artists and artisans who are helping us stock the shelves with their creations. Stay tuned to find out the details of our grand re-opening!
On the performing arts side, we have been amazed by how quickly our new Open Mic Night has caught on. We open up our gallery to the musical community to share their many talents. We have a diverse group of talented performers playing to an appreciative audience on the 3rd Thursday of every month (March 20 is next). Come and enjoy … it’s free.
Please remember, the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts belongs to you. Let us know how we’re doing. Let us know if you’d like to volunteer. Give us your ideas for a new class or let us know if you’d like to teach one. Please stay connected with us.
Have a great spring!
