The VEC is looking for art!

We want to fill our blank walls with pieces by a different artist every one or two months.

What we're looking for

  • Artists who would like to display your art in the VEC
  • Arts organizations or curators who would like to curate a small show at the VEC (putting out a call for art submissions on a certain theme, organizing a launch party, etc.)
  • Featured artists will be profiled on the VEC’s social media each month.
  • We encourage you to put your art up for sale. The VEC will take 15% commission on pieces sold.
  • All mediums welcome. We especially like art that relates to social/environmental justice in some way. We are mostly looking for 2D art, but we might be able to find a place for an awesome sculpture.

We would like to fill the spaces below:

Café Space
Dance Floor Side Wall
3 framed panels by the dance floor, each 4 feet wide

Our preference for the dance floor wall is for large art without a frame, because of the existing wooden frames.

Other spaces in the VEC might be available as well. If you have somewhere else in mind, let us know in your email.

How to apply

Artists

If you are an artist who would like to display your art at the VEC, please send:

  • 5-10 images of art you would like featured.
  • Please include the dimensions of the art pieces in either in the image name, or next to the images if they are embedded in a document.
  • A brief artist statement (max. 300 words)
Arts Organizations/Curators

If you are an arts organization or individual who would like to curate a show, get in touch with a description of your organization (or art/curation experience), and the theme of the show you would like to organize.

Include 5-10 images of art you would like featured if you have them. If you don’t have images ready yet, just a description of the proposed show is okay.

The first round of applications is due November 7th for December 2019 – May 2020!
