New this year! CVA is laying the groundwork for an off-season Residency program beginning in 2021, sharing our School of Art resources and community with professional artists beyond the nine-week summer residency. Artists who might benefit from our unique environment and facilities in the Printmaking and Ceramics areas will be invited by the Chautauqua School of Art to make work and share space with us.
