At the June 7th Artists Reception (L to R):
Donna Taylor, Richard McClintock, and Susan Harwood
Though a life-long lover of the arts, it was not until a few summers ago that Susan Harwood was introduced to watercolors in an introductory painting class led by her friend and local artist, Ursula Burgess. The abstract works at our Riverside Show are poured paints (as introduced to the art world by Jackson Pollack in the 40’s), and manipulated in a variety of methods. A retired banker, Susan now teaches Pilates, and Yoga and Silver Sneakers at the Farmville YMCA. She is a docent (tour guide) at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, and continues her work transcribing textbooks into Braille for schools in Virginia and Utah.

Susan Harwood
Richard McClintock of Farmville is trained as a Latin Professor but for years his day job was editor and graphic designer at Hampden-Sydney College. Because he had model trains as a child and can't draw anything but letters and houses, he likes making three-dimensional objects, especially of architecture. He also likes making artist books, marble raceways, and collages of incongruous items. He regards himself more a craftsman than an artist, making these objects for his own amusement. His newest hobby is producing build-it-yourself kits of historic houses, as fund-raisers for the sites. He is active in the local art scene, as former co-president of Central Virginia Arts, as a member of the advisory boards of the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts and of the Atkinson Museum of Hampden-Sydney, and as a volunteer designer for local groups, like the Visitor Center, High Bridge Trail State Park, and the Moton Museum. He and his wife Deborah, an artist, have received the LCVA's Community Achievement in the Arts award.

Richard McClintock
Donna Taylor’s favorite medium is watercolor, but she also likes working with charcoal, pastel and acrylic. She has exhibited her art at the Crossroads Art Center in Richmond, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Studio School, the Riverside Cafe, the Hampden-Sydney Atkinson Museum, the Crewe Library, the Pamplin City Depot, and other venues.

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.
