Owens, Crystal

I have enjoyed the programs of VAA for many years as a member. Three years ago, I volunteered to publish the newsletter and joined the board as the Publicity and Public Relations Chair.

I have learned what is required to promote events and exhibitions. Backed by a wonderful committee, we have reached out to our members to help them in the promotion of their own art career. That is what VAA is all about; learning and supporting each other in our art journeys, helping each member promote themselves and providing venues to exhibit our art.

Reading our “member news” in the newsletter gives me great pleasure to see all the activities and exhibitions in which each of our members participates. I have met many great people through our programs and I have met many great artists.
