Since 1972 the San Fernando Valley Arts Council, a 501 C3 non-profit organization, has promoted the appreciation and growth of culture and the arts in the community. For the 8th year the San Fernando Valley Arts Council will produce the Valley Artists Studio Tour (VAST).
The public will be invited to visit local artists’ studios and purchase art during the weekend of October 6 and 7, 2012. This will be a ticketed event with proceeds going to local arts causes. Tour Hours will be from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on both days. An artists reception and sale will take place on Saturday, October 6 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This event will allow the public to meet all of the artists while enjoying live music, refreshments and beverages. A group exhibition and sale will be open to the public the week prior to the tour.
In addition to raising money for art and music programs, VAST creates a forum for local visual artists to share their creative processes, their inspiration, and their techniques, while making fine art accessible to all members of the community. Meeting artists where they live and work and witnessing the art-making process offers an unique educational experience for the public, especially children.
Applications are now being accepted, and must be postmarked by Friday, Feb. 29, 2012.
All fine Artists are invited to submit their work for possible selection.
