PVA invites your participation in our annual members only exhibit. In this all-media show, we ask you to explore the idea of "nourishment." 2018 marks the 150th birthday of the City of Watsonville. Food and agriculture have been key to the building, employment, and sustenance of our community. Have our history, agriculture and our community nourished, informed and/or inspired your work? Have the varied languages, cultures, customs, and art forms influenced your work? Share with us what nourishes your art, soul, body, dreams, and imagination.
