About Valley Visions
All Salida-area artists are invited to submit their work for exhibition in the popular annual “Valley Visions” show, sponsored by the Salida Council for the Arts. Deadline for entries in this 6th Annual Show is Friday April 7, 2017.
Designed as a showcase for the area’s top creative talent, the non-juried exhibit will be on display May 5-30 in the Salida SteamPlant Annex. All entries will be for sale, with 80% of proceeds going to the artist and 20% to benefit the SteamPlant.
The exhibition will kick off with a Public Grand Opening reception on Friday, May 5 from 4-7 pm. The event will feature gourmet hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment, cash bar, “meet the artist” opportunities, voting and presentation of People’s Choice Award winners.
Valley Visions is open to all greater Salida area (40-mile radius) artists, photographers, artisans and sculptors; one entry per person. Patrons attending the reception will vote for their People’s Choice favorites; and winners will receive cash and/or merchandise prizes in addition to Award Certificates. The show and winners will be heavily publicized throughout the Rocky Mountain region; and many entries traditionally sell at the grand opening reception and throughout the show’s duration.
Because of space limitations, this highly popular show is limited to the first 40 entries received.
