The holidays are around the corner … and the VAC is excited to welcome back our LITTLE GEMS 2021 holiday show + sale

Taking place at 1800 Store Street from 4-19 December, Little Gems will be open daily from 11am to 5pm!

All VAC members are encouraged to participate in this non-juried opportunity.

We are looking for original works of art, craft, cards … This is a non-juried show+sale… you decide what you want to include!

The VAC will be open daily during this special annual members event, and we will be seeking volunteers to help with installation, gallery-sitting, wrapping, and clean up.

The volunteer schedule will be prepared shortly, but you can always email if you know you’ll be able to help out this year: with the subject line LITTLE GEMS VOLUNTEER 2021.
