Business patrons of the arts:
If your local business would like to display artist's work on a periodic basis, or is interested in purchasing local artist works, we would love to work with you.

Exploring creative expression is for everyone. Whether you are interested in exploring different art mediums for yourself, taking a workshop to expand your knowledge, want to know more about the art world, or are a seasoned veteran willing to go further in your creative journey, you can join others and take your interest to the next level. OR maybe as a local business, you would like to partner with the VFAA and reflect your support of the arts in the Huron Valley area of Milford and the neighboring areas.

VFAA members include potters, weavers, oil painters, watercolorists, pastel artists, acrylic painters, carvers, poets, musicians, photographers, sculptors, fabric artists the list is endless and varied.

Artist of the Year
Members are encouraged to bring up to two finished pieces to each General Meeting. Our Guest Speakers become jurors, and pick their favorites, and points are awarded for first, second and third place. At the end of the year, awards are presented to the top three point-earners. But beware! Points are also awarded for merely bringing in your art to share! Just bringing in two pieces each month might earn enough points for an award. 

Annual Exhibits - Juried each year by various southwest Michigan established artists, teachers and scholars. Includes young artist's awards. If you would like to sponsor an award, contact Susan Gollon.

In the Spring: Poetry Art Night Coffee House and Exhibition - weaves poetry and art together, so words express what the artist cannot, and art expresses what words are unable. In other words, all artwork is submitted to PAN with poetry to complement the art (or art complementing the poetry). Original poems written expressly for artwork entered into PAN are entered into the Poetry Competition. It is a natural partnership the VFAA has celebrated for over 15 years.

In the Fall: Views and Visions Art Show and "All that Jazz" Gala Night - This major fall show celebrates art and is open to all artists in the region. A prospectus is published in July. Other - See other activities on the News and Events Page
