The Visual Art League of Lewisville (VAL) is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization with community members who share an interest in the visual arts and fine crafts. Membership includes professional artists and art educators who exhibit their work state-wide and nationally, as well as individuals whose passions are the visual arts. There are several levels of membership and benefits include monthly lectures and demonstrations, a newsletter, opportunities to exhibit in member shows and discounts on art classes and juried show fees.
Throughout the year art shows featuring individual artists and groups of artists are exhibited in the Gallery at Medical Center of Lewisville Grand. A program is also in place to exhibit in local businesses such as restaurants, banks, and hotels creating a good relationship with these businesses.
The Fresh Ideas member show features the diverse styles, subjects, and media of the Visual Art League members’ work. Awards are given as well as a “People’s Choice” award which is voted on by visitors to the show. This exhibit gives each member an opportunity to exhibit, to obtain knowledge of the juried show process, and to be recognized in our community by providing a quality, professional exhibit.
The Visual Art League extends invitations to accomplished artists and speakers of the metroplex to make presentations at monthly meetings and additional special events in order to educate members and the community.
Additionally, the Visual Art League has provided judges for various groups and school competitions and given demonstrations at local venues. The Visual Art League joins with the other members of the Greater Lewisville Arts Alliance in a cooperative effort to enhance the arts in the Lewisville area and participates in City events such as Holiday at the Hall and Western Days Festival.
The Visual Art League is located at the Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater (MCL Grand), 100 North Charles Street, between Main & Church Streets in Lewisville Old Town.
