The public is invited to the Upper Valley Art League’s 2013 All Members’ Exhibit. This year’s event is being combined with the Mission Chamber of Commerce’s monthly business mixer. It begins at 7 p.m. in the UVAL gallery at 921 E. 12th St. in Mission in an evening to bring the public, the artists and business professionals together to meet, greet and shop in a relaxed, social setting.
UVAL members have been working for months “to create works of art to display and sell at the annual event,” according to Robert L. Rivera, UVAL vice president. Their varied works will cover a wide range of mediums, including sculpture, watercolor, photography, acrylic, decorative art, oil, ceramic and fiber art.
The exhibit also offers an opportunity when the artists will be present to answer questions and explain the creative processes behind their works. Their works will continue to be displayed at the gallery through Nov. 5 and can be viewed during regular gallery hours.
Two samples of the works of Juan Saenz will also be on display that evening as a preview for the upcoming UVAL “Auction for Scholarships” fundraiser. The auction takes place on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. in the UVAL gallery. Saenz has donated several art pieces for the auction to raise scholarships for art students attending UTPA and STC. Don White will serve as auctioneer for the Oct. 26 event.
For more information on either event, the gallery phone is 583-2787.
