Visual Art League of Lewisville’s mission is to foster and share a community interest in visual arts and fine crafts. They organize multiple member shows each year, provide local artists the opportunity to showcase their work, produce visiting artist lectures, networking groups and educational art activities. The Visual Art League of Lewisville (VAL) is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization with community members who share an interest in the visual arts. 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 City Lewisville Grand Theater. A program is also in place to exhibit in local businesses such as restaurants, banks, and hotels bringing art to patrons of those businesses.
VAL’s major exhibition each year, Fresh Ideas, draws regional artists and features diverse styles, subjects, and media. Cash awards are given and a “People’s Choice” award is voted on by visitors to the show. This longstanding exhibition is recognized in in the region as providing a quality professional exhibit.
