The Atrium Gallery is managed by the members of the VCAC Visual Arts Committee, comprised of accomplished artists, arts professionals, and arts advocates from across Ventura County.  Jurors and Judges are selected based on the exhibit subject matter.   The goal of the committee is to highlight and promote the breadth and diversity of the visual arts for the enrichment of the community.  Approximately 3000 citizens and 1200 employees pass through the gallery daily.  It covers three floors and some 400 linear feet of exhibit walls and also has limited room for small and large three-dimensional work.   For more information contact the Ventura County Arts Council at (805) 658-2213, or info@venturacountyartscouncil.organd visit our website at www.venturacountyartscouncil.org
