Exhibiting Your Work

Solo and small group feature exhibitions are scheduled at the discretion of the jury committee. There is a $250 exhibition fee for each solo show, however this fee may be either paid in full by the artist(s) or paid in part or full by outside donations or sponsorship (inquire for more info). VCP will aid in locating sponsorship. This fee includes heavy media promotion with newspaper and radio press releases throughout the region, a feature page on our website, an ad in the monthly Gallery Walk guide, all signage and title lettering for the exhibit, 500 custom designed exhibition postcards promoting the exhibit, and an opening reception with refreshments.

VCP will retain 50% of all sales made in the gallery unless other arrangements are agreed upon.
