NorVA Artist Retreat: July 14-21 

Enjoy the company of fellow artists in a week-long retreat. 

This summer the Denareplex will once again be transformed into a creative studio space for local and visiting artists. At this non-instructional artist retreat, participants set up their own work station and learn and share with one another. Mini-workshops are often scheduled as the retreat unfolds. Meals are prepared in collaborative teams and shared together. Photographers, potters, writers, poets, sculptors, batik artists, musicians, composers, painters are all welcome to attend.
Our intent is to create an inspiring, creative setting far from the whirl of everyday responsibilities.

The retreat fee is $160. To register, please contact NorVA Gallery Manager Mike Spencer 204 687 4237 or Karen Clark at 204 687 3080.
