The “Valley Porcelain Artists” make that possible through their annual exhibit of fine, hand-painted porcelain pieces at theJoslynCenterinBurbank. The ladies and an occasional gentleman of the VPA work all year learning, painting, having fun, and preparing for their big event in October. On display will be the results of their rare talent with many of the choice items for sale at very reasonable prices.
Each month during the year the club meets for demonstrations of various techniques by members with specific skills in the rare Victorian art of painting on porcelain. Their work runs the gamut from plates, vases, tiles, serving pieces, and even parts for doll making.
The annual exhibit is one of several events including a “Mother’s Day” Tea Party which has blossomed into a must-attend event for many loyal followers. The VPA Holiday Luncheon is one that members cherish and anticipate door prizes made by their favorite artists within the group. VPA contributes annually to “Guide Dogs of America,” one of its beloved kindnesses.
Always open to new members, VPA consists of many highly qualified teachers of this satisfying and rewarding art. Newcomers are encouraged to learn and reap the pleasures of this rare art form. You can contact Bettyann Craig, (818) 716-0814, or Cathy Riley, (818)767-0953.
Open to the public, with free admission and free parking, the exhibit is on Saturday, Oct. 13, at theJoslynCenterlocated at1301 W. Olive Ave.inBurbank.
