Holiday Party 2012

Please attend TVAA’s Christmas Party which will be held at my home on 12/14 from 6:30 pm to 8:00?

Please bring hor d’oeuvres, a side dish, or a dessert.

Bring your latest Artist Trading Cards to swap with others to keep a Christmas memory. If you have any with a Christmas theme even better.

Create a Christmas card that folks may purchase for $5.00, and the money will go toward the scholarship fund.

Please RSVP to my email at z_jr@sbcglobal.net so we may know what to expect with regard to food and beverage.

Hope to see you here.

2012 Summer Party Gallery

2012 Summer Party

TVAA Summer Membership Party
July 7, 2 to 5 pm

At this annual meeting, members will vote on our next board of officers, bylaws revisions and other resolutions. After the meeting, the party begins!

Please bring your favorite side dish or dessert to share at the potluck dinner. TVAA will provide the rest.

Be aware that there is a fee for all nearby parking. Call your friends and carpool!

At the TVAA Gallery
The Plaza of the Americas
700 N. Pearl Street, Suite G-207

Important note – parking price change
The Plaza of the Americas has raised the rates for parking in the garage on the weekends.  It is now the same as parking during the week; $1.50 for every 20 minutes, after 4 hours it is $18.00.

We believe the charge is still $5 – $6 for parking in the lots around the Plaza, such as the one on San Jacinto, and it is not far to walk.  Some lots further away may be less expensive.  And, DART which is cheaper still.

Due to this latest development parking passes from the gallery will not be handed out because it will take more to use to handle the rate increase.  And, they are needed for use by those who sit at the gallery during the week.

TVAA Bylaws: proposed amendments

Proposed bylaws amendments were approved at the July 7th Summer Party and Annual Meeting. Below is a PDF of the newly amended document.
