VAE is an organization for artists, supported by artists. Artists like you! A donation of your fabulous work will help us continue to empower emerging artists in 2018. And if community goodwill wasn’t reason enough, we also offer cash prizes, discounted tickets, and an opportunity to meet with this year’s esteemed gala jurors.

Artists with work that they would like considered for awards and inclusion in the live auction should bring their donation to VAE by January 11. Can’t meet that deadline? No worries! We’ll continue to accept donations for the silent auction through February 3!
