The Antelope Valley Allied Arts Association (AVAAA) has held its annual election this past Sunday. As many patrons of the Antelope Valley art community are aware the city is committed to enhancing the art experience here in the valley. City officials are extremely hopeful that this new board will reflect the renewed sense of appreciation in the AV art community. The new board is an example of art in the community and includes many instructors and artists from the Cedar Performing Arts Academy including: New President Michelle Navarrete, first Vice President Theresa Yvonne, second Vice President Brittany Harris, third Vice President Barbara Rychebosch, treasurer Gerrome Clipper, recording secretary Kelsey McIntyre, corresponding secretary Nina Spencer, and trustees Jason Caudle, Mike Rosa, and Courtney Stallworth.
The AVAAA was formed in 1947 to further develop the needs of the artistic community in the Antelope Valley. It is a non-profit incorporation made up of all different types of artists in the Antelope Valley area including but not limited to media artists, potters, ceramists, painters, wood carvers, actors, and photographers. Membership is open to all artists and members of the community that appreciate art and are looking to improve the culture and creativity of the Antelope Valley.
