Amy Beshgetoorian has been CVA’s president since July of 2014. Mostly self-taught, she only recently decided to finally answer her call as an artist. And, after joining CVA in the fall of 2012 she saw her career as a watercolor artist begin to take flight. She is now part of a cooperative gallery in Raleigh. As she builds her own career, she is working to bring CVA up to speed with ways to attract and involve other local artists. She loves art communities and would like to see Clayton on the map as one of them. Her vision is to unite the artist and business communities for mutual benefit.
