Having just wrapped up our AGM, we are already starting to prepare the fall studio visits, events and receptions.

But before we give you a sneak peak into what is coming up, we thought we would do a year in review of everywhere we have been and everything we have seen. Forward this post onto friends you think may want to Join the CASV as it gives them great insight into what the membership includes.  Here's to a great 2014-2015 season kicking off in September!

As the 2013-2014 season winds down before it gears up again in the fall, we hope you will join us for Colleen Heslin's talk at Monte Clark Gallery on the 6th of June. She will be discussing her exhibition that is opening the following day. Here is a link to the details and your invite should already be in your inbox.
