[GVCP] Exhibit Opportunities!  Paula Henry Peace Award!

Dear GVCP member:

This information is modified from a mailing sent out by the Genesee Valley Council on the Arts.  If you’d like to see the original mailing, click on “view this email in your browser.”  

If you’d like to compete for the Paula Henry Peace Award, it’s not too late to become a GVCA member, and submit your artwork.  Even if you’re not an artist, I hope you’ll attend the opening reception on Thursday, February 15th, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM.  That’s when the winner of the Paula Henry Peace Award will be announced.

The Genesee Valley Council on the Arts is located on Murray Hill in Mt. Morris.  It’s on the same campus as the Livingston County Center for Nursing & Rehabilitation (“The Skilled Nursing Facility”) and the Livingston County Health Department.  It’s a little daunting to drive up the hill to find the Council on the Arts.  It’s in Building #4.  On your GPS it’s 4 Murray Hill Drive.  It’s a wonderful facility and this will be a great event, so I think you’ll agree that it’s worth the effort.

Peace,

Arnie Matlin for GVCP

Paula Henry Peace Award


GVCA is pleased to announce the creation of the Paula Henry Peace Award, offered in collaboration with Genesee Valley Citizens for Peace. The Paula Henry Peace Award honors the work and values of our friend Paula Henry, who passed away in 2017.  An artist and active member of Livingston Arts Council, Paula also was a long-time member of Genesee Valley Citizens for Peace.  With GVCP, she envisioned world peace and strived to create a world where conflict did not include war, weapons, and nuclear proliferation.

The award is offered in the amount of $250 and will be given to the artist whose submission best represents the theme of peace. Judging will occur after Artwork Drop-Off, and the winner will be announced at the Opening Reception of the 2018 Freedom of Expression Member’s Exhibition.
