• NBO in Cuba!
    NBO is partnering with Peters Valley School of Craft to offer a one-of-a-kind trip to CUBA, November 10-17 2018. We invite you to join this adventure, specifically designed to allow you to experience the arts, crafts, and culture of this unique island nation at a historic time of change.

Eventually, she overhead friends talking about applying for JAM membership, and Giny decided she would as well. A JAM is a juried artist member of SAQA who has successfully presented a portfolio of professional quality images and documents to the JAM Review Panel.

The second submission was accepted. When asked why she decided to apply, Giny said, “Since I have had no formal art education, becoming a JAM was important ... read more
