Autumn is here!! Who knew summer does finally change, even in Texas?

Art is…according to a dictionary:

[from the 1300s] Skill; its display, application, or expression… [from the 1600s]

The expression or application of creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting, drawing, or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.

Is it then………...imitation or creation?

…creating beauty or harmony

…something that reveals the essential or hidden truth

…thought expressed through form (or not)

…self-expression or autobiography

…a source of calm in a chaotic world

…communication of feelings

…an addiction

…whatever is displayed in a museum or gallery?

Please share your art, your passion, your joy with BVAL. We hope you will join us at a monthly meeting, and/or an event to enjoy and celebrate local art and artists. Be inspired, be the inspiration! Join us!

We welcome visitors to our monthly meetings and hope you will become a member of BVAL!
