Giving Thanks While Hoping for a Brighter Future!

A reminder that Central Virginia Watercolor Guild is found online at

As we enter late autumn of 2021, we give thanks for all the blessings and grace in our lives. We rejoice that our Guild has adapted to the year’s special challenges and recognize our leaders for their works on our behalf.

Final Member Meeting of 2021– Oct 25

Our Guild held its final member meeting of 2021 on Monday, October 25 with a full program of refreshments, social time, a short business meeting, the Challenge! show, and a program. Our guest artist leading our program was Eleanor Cox. You can read about Eleanor in our last post and see her art on her website,

While, in “normal” years, we would enjoy a pot luck luncheon, the CVWG Board decided that posed too much of a health risk for our members so that event is not planned. Our next in-person meeting will be January 24, 2022. Look for more details in the coming weeks.
