Carbondale Arts presents the 40th Annual Valley Visual Art Show, opening on Friday, January 17 with a reception from 6-8pm. An artist reception and preview will take place from 5:30-6pm for members and gallery patrons, and the show will open to the public at 6pm.
The Valley Visual Art Show is one of the longest-standing community art shows committed to showing the work of local artists. VVAS began in 1980 as a venue for local artists to share their artwork with the public. VVAS still provides this opportunity, especially for artists new to the area and budding artists, but the show has also become both a salute to the wide variety of artistic talents in our area and a time to bring the artist community together. This show features 50 Roaring Fork Valley artists and includes two and three dimensional work created in with wide variety of media. We received work from many new artists as well as many long time local artists from the Roaring Fork Valley.
Participating artists also have the opportunity to vie for the People’s Choice Awards, so don’t forget to vote for your favorite! Winners announced at the close of the show on February 28.
