The WVC Art Department is proud to acknowledge the contributions of many local artists to our program.  Parallel to the annual Student Art Exhibition (in Robert Graves Gallery), this invitational show highlights and honors the range of excellent exhibiting local artists and art educators who take art classes at WVC.  Their presence in our courses enriches the atmosphere and enhances the experiences of our more traditional students.  As known and respected exhibiting artists who are engaged with WVC, they also help us to connect in meaningful ways to the Valley’s burgeoning arts community. Until June 10th.
