Artists Reception on December 6 

Central Virginia Arts will be hosting an Artists Reception on Friday, December 6, 2019, from 6 to 8 pm, at the Riverside Café, 522 N. Main, Farmville, VA. There will be savories and sweet bites as well as beverages. If you can bring a savory or sweet bite, please let Lois Thomas or Leslie Dennsion know.

This is an exhibition opening for an all-members show who will be displaying their works during December and January. If you want to display your works, contact Rick Thomas. This will be a good time to pay your CVA dues for 2020. 
A Juried Photography Show will be held at the Hotel Weyanoke

Your CVA President, Cynthia Wood, is working with the Hotel Weyanoke to establish a Juried Photography Exhibit for CVA Members at the hotel. The submissions will be "juried" by hotel staff, so submitting a photo does not ensure your photography will be displayed.

Stay tuned for more details.
2020 Dues are Now Payable

Last year, we changed from a fiscal year to a calendar year for memberships and dues. Along with that change, dues for the calendar year 2020 are payable from October 1, 2019, to January 31, 2020. If you are not currently a member, this is a great time to join. Of course, we hope all current members will want to promptly renew their memberships.

Dues for an Individual Membership are $20.00. For a Couple or Family Membership, the dues are $25.00. Contributing or Business Member dues are $40.00.

You can pay you dues any one of four ways: cash, check, Paypal, or credit card. We recommend cash or credit card payments be made in person at a CVA event. Checks can be mailed to: Central Virginia Arts; c/o Paul Hoffman, Treasurer; 988 Sulphur Spring Rd; Prospect, VA 23960. Paypal payments can be made on the CVA website. Be sure to select the correct membership category from the drop-down menu.
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.
