October 2019 Newsletter


A Message From Bronwen Fullington, President of CVA:

Fall is finally in the air, and getting out to see art is one of the joys of the season. All of October, there is a wonderful exhibit at the Clayton Center featuring two artists of great accomplishment; Jeanne George of Clayton, showing watercolors, and Henryk Fantazos of Hillsborough, presenting copperplate prints. Stop by for an art break, or treat yourself to a second look if you were at the opening on October 3. Anticipating the holidays to come, CVA is partnering with the Woman’s Club to present Christmas in Clayton at Portofino on December 8. Tickets are available trough CVA members, CVA website, of the Woman’s Club. Enjoy the harvest season!                                   –Bronwen
