The Art of Everyday Photography Workshop This Saturday

Point & Shoots, Polaroids & Phone Cameras Welcome. Space is limited. Email Deborah McClintock or call her at 434-390-5027. The fee is $25.00 for members, and $45.00 for non-members, which includes a one-year individual membership.

Yolonda Jones envisions holding and facilitating space for VMFA distanced student participants to experience a primer in the Art of Everyday Photography. She will conduct the session in three parts: guiding students through an introduction to the theory of photography as art, getting cameras into the hands of budding artists to explore photography in practice; and finally exposing student creatives to the process of constructive critiquing as offered by their peers. She will briefly discuss and showcase some of her own work before engaging the group in a demonstrative conversation around terms like composition, light, shadow, the rule of thirds, mood and storytelling.

For more than 10 years, Y.C. Jones Photography has been beautifully capturing growing families, new love, mature love, childhood, weddings, special events, and birth & death transitions. In addition to serving her private client base along the U.S. east coast (VA, DC, MD, NY, GA, & PA), Yolonda has worked as a contributing photographer for the Charlottesville, VA-based University of Virginia Magazine.

Sales Tax Reminder

This is a reminder that artists are responsible for paying sales tax to the Commonwealth of Virginia on art sale proceeds.

Here is a link to the Virginia Temporary Sales Tax payment eForm. This form is also available on the CVA website on the "CVA Artist Exhibition Forms" page. If you sell more than three times in a year, you will need to register with the VA Department of Taxation.

In the case of Riverside Café sales, Riverside collects the sales tax from the buyer, The CVA then distributes the artist's 70% share of the sale plus 100% of the sales tax collected. 25% of the Riverside Café sales goes to Riverside Café, and 5% goes to the CVA.
