March 2019 Newsletter



We are getting closer to some exciting exhibits as we inch into spring. Be sure to stop by The Clayton Center to check out the March exhibit with Jackie Balog; colored pencil & watercolor, and Amy Devereaux; mixed media. Both exhibits are exceptional!!

As always, if you are not already a member of Clayton Visual Arts, I encourage you to join and help us with our mission! – “Bringing Art to Clayton”

In celebration of Clayton’s 150th anniversary  Artists of all 2-D painting and drawing media are invited to enter this year’s Paint the Town competition. Coinciding with Clayton’s sesquicentennial, artists may enter up to three works of art for one low entry fee. This year’s theme is Clayton: Past & Present. Artists are welcome to use historic photos of Clayton for inspiration and reference. However, photography entries must wait until next year’s Capture the Town photography competition. Deadline to enter is April 26th. Prospectus and on-line entry found at CVA’s website:
