Napa Art Drive Pop Up

As you may know, AANV had to cancel its annual Open Studios in September as a result of the COVID-19 virus restrictions. This plague has also had a devastating affect on the Napa Valley economy, causing many of our citizens to experience financial hardship and food vulnerabilities. A group of artists will be addressing both situations this month. The Napa Art Drive Pop Up will be held on Saturday, October 17, 2020, from 10 AM to 5 PM. The entry fees paid by the participating artists will be split between the Napa Food Bank and AANV. If you have the means, you are encouraged to donate to the Napa Food Bank, whether you drop by the Pop Up locations or not.

We would love for you to drive by the locations shown on this map and check out the local artwork for sale or just for viewing. Please wear your mask, as required by county and state rules. We will maintain the required social distancing and have hand sanitizer available at each location. 

Please join us! See you then!

A Statement from AANV Board of Directors

Art Association Napa Valley believes that all individuals deserve to be treated equally and equitably. Our mission is to foster and encourage creative arts. We state clearly and without equivocation that we condemn racism in all its forms: conscious, unconscious, institutional, structural, historic, and continuing.

We are committed to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to promoting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.

Compliance

Art Association Napa Valley (AANV) continues to comply with government directives to practice “social distancing” by canceling or postponing all events at the Art Center at 1520 Behrens Street in Napa until further notice. The Art Gallery Napa Valley at 1307 First Street in Napa is temporarily closed for the same reason. We will let you know immediately when we may resume activities at these two venues. UPDATE: Art Gallery Napa Valley is OPEN starting July 1, 2020.

In the meantime, please stay safe at home, wash those hands regularly, practice social distancing if you have to be out, wear your fashionable mask and create beautiful art.
