June 30th marks the end of the fiscal year for nonprofits like us! Help VAE kick off next year’s projects with a bang with an end-of-year show of support!

If you were one of the 155,000 people we reached with our exhibitions and programs last year (which included 2,300 artists!), please consider showing your support with a donation or by becoming a VAE sustainer or member! Whether you can give $1 or a jillion, every bit helps us get a jump start on the new fiscal year!

VAE Raleigh believes that art matters because it is a voice and a tool to communicate thoughts, feelings and experiences that escape normal vocabulary. By helping creative people make and share thoughtful work, VAE helps the Triangle be a more vibrant place to call home.

VAE builds its 70+ annual exhibits and 50+ annual programs by listening and responding to what the community needs. Currently on our to-do list: MORE! More inspiration. More exhibit opportunities. More funding for creative people. More individualized learning to fit artists' changing needs. More inclusion. More empowerment. More yes. 


Small, artist-run organizations like VAE depend on inspiration, feedback, and support from their communities to exist. That’s where you come in! We hope you will support the work we do by becoming a member (or renewing your membership), giving a gift membership or donation, or by giving a tax-deductible cash donation.
