Sylva art gallery opening

The Jackson County Visual Arts Association (JCVAA) will hold its “Grand Opening” gallery show from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, June 10, at Gallery 1 at 604 West Main Street in Sylva.

JCVAA is also sponsoring special music composition workshops, “Art Inspired Composition,” conducted by Iva Veazey. Students will choose a piece of art to work with, translating the visual components of color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value into the basic elements of music: melody, harmony, rhythm, tone, form, tempo and dynamics. 

The classes are as follows:

• Ages 8-15: 1 to 5 p.m. June 14.

• Ages 16-adult: 5 to 9 p.m. June 15. 

Cost is a $15 materials fee. The workshop will culminate in fun, multi-sensory experience open to the public offered from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, June 24, at Gallery 1. 

JCVAA members will provide refreshments at the upstairs gallery and studio location. The opening and reception is free and open to the public.
