We were visiting the area and were told of a photography guild show here. The hostess was very friendly and introduced us to the show. There was plenty of room available, lighting was good and it was a reasonably good show.

GVA is a treat with lots to see including a lovely gift shop. For those visiting for awhile, courses are available. The art is varied and interesting. Lectures are well designed and very informative without being too long.
