This gallery is right around the corner from my house so I stop in periodically to see what's new. I was last there in August for The Juried Summer Exhibition which featured some fantastic works from around the state. If you have some time and are looking for something fun to do with friends or visiting family go on line... More

Our two sons LOVE the AVA and the art camps. We would highly recommend their programs. They're a great way for children to find and express their creativity.

A little off the beaten path, this gallery is worth the detour. It is a gem. AVA offers art classes at every level and shows a wide variety of top-notch work. Housed in a former clothing factory, the building alone is worth a look-see.

I have been to many gallery openings and receptions here, as well as a couple of Opera North concerts. The most recent exhibition was in mid-September of last year, when my brother, sister-in-law, and I went to the opening of a special exhibit on The Art of the Woodcut Novel. It was fascinating, and we all enjoyed it immensely. Unfortunately,... More

I have been to Ava many times, they show local artists that are trying to establish their business. I like to be supportive the work is usually above high school quality and sometimes has some "real artistic talent".

An art gallery with studios for a variety of art classes for adults and kids. There is a beautiful light filled art gallery with current exhibitions which were interesting . Only a handful of people there when we visited. The art studios were cavernous and I would have loved to have taken a class but sadly none available for what... More

When I was little I used to go to AVA for art lessons, but now I'm taking my niece and nephew for a wonderful program called CAOS. For $5 kids can be their own artist in a variety of mediums: clay, paint, drawing, etc. Such a great deal and the kids love it. I'm so happy that AVA has expanded... More
