Echo Valley Art Group Members: Past and Present

Echo Valley Art Group has grown into a group of professional artists whose size is intentionally limited to twenty-five, so they can meet monthly in each others’ homes and studios and can exhibit together annually in a gallery or museum. The art ranges from realistic, traditional watercolors and oils, to wonderfully expressionistic acrylics, functional or decorative ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, and always some surprises. The group, collectively, has centuries of art production, many awards, and some fascinating stories to tell.

The Echo Valley Art Group has a long standing tradition of high standards and a rigorous selection process for new members. Echo Valley Art Group membership is by invitation. The group selects artists for nomination based on their exhibition history and career development, their participation in the arts community and on what they might add to the group.
