be a part of the next season…

The VAS turns 50 in 2019!

Among the events planned is an auction of hand painted benches.  That is wooden benches painted by individual artists or cooperative artists sponsored by our Vienna community of business people and merchants.  The project is adopted from a similar one done by artist in Purceville, VA.  VAS artists should be thinking about their preliminary sketches for their bench now. There will be more information on that later.

The Vienna Community Center will be reopening soon with a wonderful exhibition space for VAS artists to regularly show work.  In addition, the VAS Treasury of Art will return to the Vienna Community Center in the next year. It is being planned to take place in April of 2019.

The real exciting event that is only a month away is that The Vienna Art Society  is moving its Art Center from Pleasant Street the Windover Building at 243 Church Street, NW, suite 100, Vienna, Virginia 22180.
