The Atrium Gallery is managed by the VCAC to provide a wide array of visual arts from diverse artists for the community's enjoyment and education, while coexisting within an active public workplace. Juried competetive shows are held throughout the year with the upper floor occaisionally used for curated exhibitions (not shown above). The VCAC usually juries submissions to competitive shows, but it secures outside Judges to select award winners. Jurying is FREE; artists only pay for work that is juried into a show (at rates that are coparable to other galleries). Approximately 3000 citizens and 1200 employees pass through the gallery daily. Its three floors includes some 400 linear feet of exhibit walls as well as limited room for free-standing small and large three-dimensional work. One-off "installation pieces" are welcomed; give us a proposal. for more imformation contact the atrium gallery at gallery@vcartscouncil.org and visit our website at www.VCArtsCouncil.org and view images of the gallery.
