VAA received more than 450 submissions from 126 member artists. Juror for the exhibition is Gus Kopriva, owner of Redbud Gallery in Houston. Mr. Kopriva has selected 66 works that will be on display at 1600 Smith Street through Saturday, November 22.


    The public is invited to the opening reception on Wednesday, September 23 from 6 to 8 p.m. Awards will be presented to the winning artists, including more than $2,500 in cash prizes. This is the 74th professionally juried exhibit which  VAA has produced since its founding in 1981.  No other community based arts organization has this amount of exhibition experience.

    The 1600 Smith Street Gallery is on the concourse of 1600 Smith Street, Houston, Texas 77002. Do plan to arrive earlier rather than later, as access to the building becomes more difficult after business hours.
