Please join us for an Opening Reception and a chance to meet the artists will be held on Friday March 2nd from 6 – 8 pm during the Historic Downtown Mall’s First Friday events.

The ceramic artists included in the exhibit are: Barbara Albert, who has provided gorgeous hand thrown pottery to Central Virginia for over two decades; Tanya Tyree, a clay artist mastering the fine art of Raku with extraordinary results; Trina Player,  bringing dynamic glazing to her functional work with a sparkling presence; Jan Crowther, with her peaceful spirit that shines throughout her work and a playful element that carries a smile; and last but not least, Roger Rood is welcomed as the newest member with his unique and vibrant yet functional approach to clay.

This outstanding group of artists presents an expansive range of decorative and functional works to satisfy your needs and any budget. From the most austere to the absolute decadent these artists will help you set a mood and the table with pride. You too can turn any meal into a feast and any house into a home with style.

Following New Passions

February is the month to celebrate love, past, present and future. Please join the cooperative for a special, month long, commemorative exhibit featuring 2 extremely talented and loved members who are moving on to new adventures in life. The opening reception will be on Friday February 3rd from 6 – 8 pm.

Leslie Allyn paints whimsical designs in rich colors and organic line, using unique techniques in watercolor and black ink pen. The paintings and their distinctive style are a clever combination of the ethereal and the mundane, inspired by dreams, nature, contemplation, and fleeting moments.

C'ville Arts Cooperative and Gallery on the downtown mall in Charlottesville, VirginiaMingqiu Chen is a Chinese paper cutting artist who has mastered the technique with exquisite details. Viewers often find her compositions astonishing when they realize all are painstakingly made from hand cut paper.

C’ville Arts will miss both of these popular artists and their generous spirit, as they individually move away from Charlottesville to seek new passions. We wish them both a wonderful future filled with vision, creativity and prosperity. This is a rare opportunity to show your appreciation by giving them a strong farewell celebration.
