PV Arts opens annual members' show

Posted: Wednesday, Feb 8th, 2017

Tarmo Hannula/Register-Pajaronian Jane Gregorius is a curator in the latest exhibit at the Pajaro Valley Gallery, "take aways, Art To Go!"

WATSONVILLE With many art exhibits, there is often a delay, sometimes months, between the time a person purchases a piece of art and is able to take it home.

Not so with Pajaro Valley Arts' new show.

Like shopping at a mall, those who buy a piece of art in "Take Aways: Art To Go!" can remove it from the wall and take it home the same day.

PVA's first exhibit of 2017 opened Wednesday and runs through March 19. An opening reception is scheduled for Sunday from 2-4 p.m. at the gallery, 37 Sudden St. in Watsonville.

"The idea is everything is affordable," said Jane Gregorius, who is curating the exhibit with Judy Cooper, Susan Matulich and Susanna Waddell. "You are able to walk in the door and take it home."

About 600 pieces from 66 artists are on display, including sculptures, encaustic, painting, printing, photography, glasswork and more. Everything is available for under $300.

Once purchased, a piece of art is immediately replaced with another by the same artist, creating a rotating exhibit, Gregorius said.

"Take Aways" is the annual PVA members show, which also serves as a fundraiser for the organization. Last year, more than $33,000 was sold over the four-week duration of the exhibit, according to Waddell.

"This is a hot members show," Gregorius said.

Several donated pieces will be part of a raffle drawing during the closing reception on March 19 from 2-4 p.m.

The Pajaro Valley Gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For information, visit pajarovalleyartscouncil.org or call 722-3062.
