Our entire membership of talented artists will be featured in November at C-ville Arts. Many of us will be at the gallery to meet you and share our creative reflections about 20 years of serving Charlottesville and the surrounding community during the First Friday event on November 3rd, from 6 to 8.
Please come and join our celebration! November 3rd will be a rare opportunity to meet a larger cast of our membership than usual. We’ve come a long way, from the pop-up shop beginnings at various locations on the mall, to our current permanent location in the center of the historic downtown mall. This will be a gala event you won’t want to miss. Our artists are creating commemorative works to mark this occasion. Here are just a few reflections from our group of over 60 high quality artists and craftspeople:
“I come from almost two hours away to be a part of C’ville Arts and to be around the art and these artists. So many talented artists here” – Dana Masters
“I grew up around cooperative businesses and communities. C’ville Arts is the best I’ve seen yet. The variety of creativity and talent is abundant. The skill, maturity and thoughtfulness of how the members work together unbeatable and top notch!” – Flame Bilyue
“Artistic community coming together in spirit and creative ability!” – Meg West
“I frequently tell customers that if you cannot find a gift for that special someone at C’ville Arts, you are definitely in trouble.” – Ben Greenberg
“A true gem on the downtown mall, a variety of unique artwork where there is something for everyone!” – Susan Dukes
“I’ve been a member for almost 10 years, I can sincerely say, I’ve always been incredibly impressed by how supportive and caring this group is to one another. This is a high quality bunch of talent packed in one place working efficiently with a lot of love.” – Lisa O. Woods
As a cooperative group we recognize we wouldn’t have such an exciting milestone without the support from our community and customers. We’re doing something special as a token of our appreciation for this important landmark in our history by offering each customer 20% off one item they purchase on First Friday, November 3rd! We look forward to seeing you there and sharing our special collection of people and work.
