CAVA is a volunteer organization dedicated to giving you and its nearly 200 other members throughout Chicagoland the opportunity to exhibit artwork in at least three exhibits annually in such notable venues as the Chicago Cultural Center, Evanston Art Center, Bridgeport Art Center, Beverly Arts Center, and the Leslie Wolfe Gallery in Old Town. Creating art can be a solitary occupation. CAVA creates community by providing events and opportunities for artists to come together through its salon, a member luncheon, our annual symposium, and other special events. 

     The volunteer board members manage these activities, and handle most of the  individual tasks as well. In an effort to better provide services for you and your fellow members the board is asking for volunteer help to expand CAVA's reach, provide additional professional expertise, and to make sure our ambitious programs will serve the membership even more effectively. 

     Please Join a CAVA committee—Membership, Marketing, Operations, or Events. You can choose your area of interest within these committees. Board meetings are open to all members. Attend a board meeting to learn more about CAVA operations.
