All of our 70+ exhibits and 50+ programs and events revolve around a central question: How can artists improve their communities, and how in turn can communities nourish + improve their artists?

We work hard to empower creative people to listen and respond creatively to the world around them. What's on our to-do list this year? 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. More fun.

2019 Jurors: Brandi Neuwirth, Chanda Branch, Nell Fortune-Greely

>> Artist Appreciation Brunch
January 19, 10am-12pm at VAE!

Come hang out, sip mimosas, drop off your beautiful art donations*, and talk art! All donating artists will meet one-on-one with a juror (or two!) to talk about their work and get valuable feedback, tips, and insights. A fun, casual brunch in honor of you!

* January 19 is the last date to have your art donations considered for prizes and jurying into this year’s live auction. We will happily take donations up till close of business on February 13th, but they will not be considered for fame and glory.
