Due to the continued severity of the Covid-19 virus and variants, the VAC is currently closed for regular hours.  You may schedule an appointment to see the studio artists and their works between 11 am and 4 pm Thursday through Saturday.

Hopefully, as vaccines begin to roll out and cases diminish, we'll be able to be fully open soon with classes and regular retail hours.  Stay tuned!  Thank you for your continued support!
