A Message From Bronwen Fullington, President of CVA:

As summer heats up and many of us head for the beach or the mountains, the new officers and board of Clayton Visual Arts are planning another year of arts exhibits and community events. We will be at Clayton Farm and Community Market on the last Saturday of the month, as well as continuing to hang great shows at the Clayton Center. Wishing you all a cool and creative summer!
