Pomona Valley Art Association opens in Village, celebrates 70 years

On Friday, October 21, Pomona Valley Art Association will celebrate 70 years of art and community service with an official grand opening of its new Gallery SOHO location, 317 W. First St., Claremont, right in the heart of the Claremont Village.

Original works by more than 50 artists from the greater Pomona Valley area will be on display and attendees will get to explore the gallery’s classroom and outdoor exhibition space during the grand opening.

The gallery will remain open Monday through Saturday between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. After business hours, PVAA’s online storefront can be accessed at pvaa.net.

“Our move to Claremont has been the culmination of months of planning, hard work, and challenging decisions. I am incredibly proud of all of our exhibiting artists, my fellow board members, and our active membership,” said Pomona Valley Art Association President Kathleen McCall in a statement. “This new space will create an amazing palette for us to offer new experiences, learning opportunities, and present some of the finest original artwork in our region. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our 70th year!”

Future events will include monthly art shows hosted in PVAA’s online gallery and annual activities like the annual open juried show, youth artists show and ongoing fundraising activities.
