Lake Effect Exclusive Gallery Tour

To wrap up our Lake Effect exhibit featuring new works by Valerie Berkely, the CVA hosted a tour of the gallery for Elite Members of the CVA.

Valerie showed members around the gallery, sharing personal anecdotes behind some of her works and the success she has had by being at the CVA to engage and teach within the exhibit. TJ "Rasta" Roovers also shared his process for creating the magnificent fire pit on display in the gallery, as well as his Little Rib River Wooden Bench, which he kindly donated to the CVA to be part of our raffle. 

It was a wonderful night of good food, great conversation, and beautiful works of art!

 The night was capped off with door prizes and the drawings of our bench and kayak raffle. Congratulations to Yvonne Leverett, who won our kayak, and Nancy Dolenshek, who won our wooden bench!
