A Message From Bronwen Fullington, President of CVA:

In these confusing times, when we find ourselves separated by circumstances beyond our control, we can find solace and connection through the arts.
Music, visual arts, literature and spoken word are all ways we can connect with the best in humanity.

So, make your art, look and listen to the art of others, read, and look at nature. There are many museum collections available on the Internet, as well as music and poetry.

I am sad to say that, because of the Covid-19 crisis and general shutdown of town and state, Clayton Visual Arts is obliged to suspend its activities for the duration. This means that until it is deemed safe to do so, we will not have monthly meetings at the Clayton Center, nor will we be able to hang our scheduled shows for April, May and June. Educational and community activities are also on hold.

Looking forward to coming together and continuing to enjoy art and each other in Clayton.

Warm wishes,

Bronwen Fullington, CVA President
