Carol Niffenegger expresses her deep belief in creation and how the creative process relates to plants and humans. Inspired by Goethe's research on organic growth, she explores the spiritual and physical attributes of the plant world and how it connects to principles of life and death in the human world.

The Holland Area Arts Council is presenting an exhibition featuring Grand Valley Artists, the oldest art group in West Michigan. This group consists of over 270 West Michigan artists that have their own studio/gallery/meeting space in Grand Rapids, where they hold life drawing sessions, workshops, still life sessions, en plein air (painting outdoors) and once a month hold a critique, where members can bring in their most recent work to get feedback on.
GVA has been around since 1957, and includes artists that have become internationally known as well as members who are just beginning to include art in their lives. It's members practice all types of art from painting, woodcuts, drawing, sculpting, ceramics and styles ranging from realism to abstract. Grand Valley Artists also has a photography group that hold bi-monthly meetings and their own yearly art show in the gallery. GVA encourages all adult artists to join at grandvalleyartists.com.
