Each year, the Austin Visual Arts Association holds a show for outstanding artists in the organization. The nonprofit group, which was formerly called the Austin Contemporary Visual Arts Association, is composed of working artists and supporters of the arts.
This year's gallery will feature a new painting by Valerie Walden, who developed her talent with guidance from artists and instructors at the Austin Museum of Art, University of Texas. Her piece, titled I Hear the Whiestle Blowing, features a mountain-side train in Skagway, Alaska. The 12-by-36-inch painting is from her Alaska series, which also features images of glaciers and the ocean.
The 2010 Austin Visual Arts Association Member Show will run July 17 through August 7 at the Studio2Gallery in South Austin. The gallery will showcase paintings of landscapes, portraiture, still life, floral prints and animals. The pictures come in a range of mediums and techniques including abstract and representational pieces.
The art featured in this year's show was selected by Tina Weitz, owner of Studio2Gallery and Donna Crosby, artist and Austin Visual Arts Association president.
"I'm pleased to be part of the annual show again this year. It's like presenting with your extended family. But, there is always some surprising new work," said Valeria Walden.
