Pajaro Valley Arts invites you to join us for our first exhibit of 2023, New Beginnings. The annual PVA Members’ Exhibit is a favorite tradition and encourages our members to explore a huge range of topics, insights, and new approaches. This year’s theme, New Beginnings, uses the promise of the new year to encourage us to explore new artistic ideas as we all begin to emerge from the last three years of Covid-19 isolation.
