Jessica Lambert, co-founder and Executive Director of VALA (Venues for Artists in the Local Area), will give a presentation about the organization at our January 15, 2015 membership meeting.
VALA’s mission to connect artists to artists, artists to the community, and the community to art is achieved by featuring local artists, who are particularly interested in connecting to the community in meaningful ways. Through the VALA Artist to Artist Series, featured artists discuss their inspiration and process with other artists. This is open to the local community. VALA connects the community to artists by facilitating events and programs such as the VALA Artist Studio, which invites community members to create art alongside featured artists. It also creates partnerships with local businesses and organizations to provide non- traditional venues for artists.
By providing space for local artists, who are creating compelling artwork, from jewelry to painting to whimsical, but meaningful fiber artwork, these artists and their artwork are honored and appreciated by the public at large.
