AVCA latest ‘pop-up’ gallery opens

It’s temporary, but it’s home to the Auburn Valley Creative Arts.

Continuing its mission to promote and bring local art to the community, the nonprofit organization recently opened its latest “pop-up” gallery at The Villas at Auburn, a new apartment complex at 1221 A St. NE, Auburn.

“It has a lot more visibility, and there’s good lighting in here,” AVCA member Fran Reese said of the new place, which stretches more than 1,260 square feet. “It’s just nice to have the space again so the artists can show their work.”

AVCA signed a short-term lease with The Villas, allowing them to display and sell local art through the end of the year, at which time the group hopes to secure another location.

The gallery has been on the go, completing a successful summer garden tour after leaving its previous home, the former Rottles store on East Main Street.

All art for sale is original, hand made. The gallery supports art of many mediums and offers paintings, sculptures, pottery, jewelry, bags and cards. The new gallery is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday to Saturday.

The AVCA welcomes new members and donations. The group does a monthly paint-on-location event at The Outlet Collection mall. AVCA has worked with about 200 artists, all of whom remain on its mailing list, since the organization began eight years ago.
