Member Shows

The Carter House Gallery gives NVAL members the opportunity to display and sell their artwork throughout the year. The art in the Gallery is ever-changing as new shows are hung approximately every month.   It is the continual rotation and variety of quality fine art that make frequent visits to the Carter House Gallery a ‘Must-Do’ for people living in and passing through California’s North State.

The NVAL Gift Ship features a wonderful display of artwork created by our members: jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, glasswork, gourds, pottery, metalwork, hand-painted silk items, weaving, wood pieces, soft sculpture, cards, prints, and other original creations.

Lectures, Demonstrations


Open to the Public: Several times each year North Valley Art League presents a Fine Arts Program with demonstrations, lectures, slide presentations and sometimes hands-on activities by local and visiting artists.


Open to the public: Classes and workshops in a variety of media run throughout the year giving NVAL members and guest artists an opportunity to share their particular art form with others. It is a time to learn, to create and enjoy the company of other artists.

Teach, Learn and Grow
Share and Socialize

Open Studio

NVAL has a wonderful studio located in the front portion of the Carter House Gallery. There is no charge for members to enjoy the studio, which offers a perfect place to create art. Members work on their art, share techniques and knowledge, socialize with other members and receive friendly and useful critique from fellow artists.

Children’s Art Programs

The League’s art program for children is an ongoing community activity, where kids supply the imagination, and accomplished artists from the League present the techniques for a variety of creative art projects.
