Thanks to All the CVA Members!!!

The CVA could not function without all the wonderful members who contribute their time and resources to support and promote the arts here on the Southside of Virginia.

As of January 31, 2020, (the deadline for paying 2020 dues) the CVA has 94 voting members, including 5 voting business members!
A BIG Shout Out to CVA Volunteers 

A BIG THANK YOU all our CVA volunteers. We could not do it without you.

Board of Trustees: Thanks to Susan Harwood and Phyllis McKinney for years of service on the Board and welcome new members, Pat Howe and Greg Wolfrey.
Coordinators: Thank you Rick Thomas for coordinating CVA art exhibitions and welcome Dean Lord, Art Show Coordinator. Thank you Lois Thomas for coordinating hospitality at CVA receptions and parties, and thank you Leslie Dennison for continuing to help. Thank you Martha Louis for reviving the arts at the Heart of Virginia Festival. Welcome Adam Paulek and Angela Bubash as the new CVA/HOV Coordinators.
Juried Photography Show at the Hotel Weyanoke 

Our President, Cynthia Wood, continues to work with the Hotel Weyanoke on a Juried Photography Show for CVA Members, including Longwood University and Hampden-Sydney College students whose entry fee would include a CVA membership.

Cynthia is still trying to coordinate the dates for this show, and the Hotel Weyanoke is working to coordinate with the colleges

Most CVA art shows are not "Juried Shows." In a "Juried Show," the art is "juried" by a panel of judges who have the final say in which art is displayed. In this case the photography will be juried by the Hotel Weyanoke (not the CVA), so submission does not guarantee your photography will be in the show.

Stay tuned for more details.
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.
