Hello VPS Members!
We are pleased to announce that during this time of COVID19, we will still be able to hold a members show at the beautiful Southern Vermont Arts Center.  Originally, this show was to be our 2021 juried show, but due to the short time we have to organize it, it was agreed that we would make it a members show.
Please submit your artwork before midnight on March 1.  We only need the title(s) and the size(s) by March 1 ,  so that we can determine:
·       How many members want to display artwork.
Once we have a total number of members who want to show their work along with the sizes, we will determine:
·       If we can fit both your first choice and your second choice paintings.
If we have a large turnout with many large paintings, we may only allow one of your paintings in the show due to space constrictions.
Southern Vermont Art Center will be hanging this show and it will coincide with their Members Show so their advertising will benefit us.
