  • Meetings are open to interested guests, and include a arts speaker, open to the public. 
  • Members are invited to participate - encouraged to bring up to two finished pieces to the meeting, not necessarily framed. Our guest speaker acts as informal juror for the night and points are earned for the winners which total at the end of the year for an Artist of the Year  or Haskew Challenge award.

What is the SHAC ?  Center for art classes, events and programs

Two Annual Invitational Shows - Open to all artists: Juried by various southwest Michigan established artists, teachers and scholars. Includes young artist's awards. Invites the public to sponsor or dedicate both art and poetry awards.

  • 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.
  • Fall: Views and Visions Art Show and "All that Jazz" Gala Night - Annual art show open to artists, all mediums. Prospectus is published in August.

  • Check the annual calendar or News for additional artist exhibit opportunities that pop up during the year.
