From the Director: Signs of a New Year at CVA
For those of you who tend to burrow down during the winter months, it may feel odd to celebrate new beginnings when all you want to do is recouperate from the bustle of the last months of 2013. However, the time to plan for that new leaf is now and we here at CVA are embracing the opportunity through rekindling past connections and pursuing new ones. Here's a brief rundown of what's happening and what's in store for 2014:
2014 is the Year of Connections!
This year, CVA is committed to reaching out, reaching in and reaching beyond towards new community and program goals. We will be connecting with the Cary community in new ways; such as through more frequent eblasts, a new informational e-newsletter, special events for our sponsors and supporters and artist-led workshops and lectures. We are also gearing up for our 7th annual Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition, slated to open on July 18! Mark your calendars for this intimate artists reception where you can celebrate the opening of this exciting event, meet the artists and juror, and support the arts in Downtown Cary.
On November 7 we celebrate the arts in high style at our 18th Annual Art Ball. Plan to join us at our most celebrated event to raise funds and awareness of the arts in Cary; live music, art auction and great food await. Check back often for emerging updates on this exciting event.
