Call for Entries – 5th Annual VIVA Member Show!

VIVA is excited to announce the 5th Annual VIVA Members Show.

Vashon Center for the Arts will host VIVA in June 2022. We hope every member will participate! VIVA will command the entire Koch Gallery space, Gallery Shop and the spacious walls of the Atrium to display VIVA’s wide range of talent. 

Eligibility is open to all members of VIVA working in 2D or 3D. Not a member? It’s only $20. Join HERE!

We hope to display the best of VIVA’s multi-talented members with 3D and 2D works. We’re looking for fiber arts, jewelry, sculpture, pottery, mosaic, photography, prints, paintings…all mediums!

Please submit 2(two) to 4(four) pieces. One work will be chosen from every artist, and some may be asked to show two if we have space. For 2D artists, please choose a variety of sizes if you are submitting a very large piece. For 3D artists, reasonable sizes should not be a problem.

If you have questions about size or medium, feel free to contact  Lin Holley

All work must be for sale, not have been shown at VCA before, and preferably not shown on the island. It can be older work, but still needs to fit the above conditions.
