President’s Message

I want to thank you, each and every one of you, my fellow members of the San Fernando Valley Art Club, for our good times this year. All of you. Each of you. Everything you do to forward your talent – your art – is part of the club. Likewise, without you, the club does nothing. As we finish up the year, I encourage each and every club member to consider what they want their club to accomplish going forward, and then to think even harder as to what they individually and as a group can do to bring this vision about.

The club is you. You are the club. It can’t happen without you – and I assure you even more sincerely that it won’t.
