The Visual Arts Society of Texas, formerly known as the North Texas Area Art League, was organized in 1975. VAST seeks to further community appreciation for and participation in the visual arts, provide opportunities for developing artists’ skills and expression, and offer fellowship with people of similar interests.
This year, Ampersand supported the VAST 8th Annual 125 mile-radius exhibition by donating a range of our museum grade panels and some Scratcbord tools to a finalist artist, Robin Butt, for her work Emerald Falls, Grand Canyon.
VAST sponsors an annual event to offer artists—student and professional—within a 125-mile radius of Denton an opportunity to enter their work in a juried exhibition and to compete for awards. The exhibit provides an excellent opportunity for the north Texas community to appreciate the high quality and diverse nature of art produced by artists in our region.
Even though the VAST exhibit is closing on February 21, 2014, you can download the show catalogue here to see all of the finalists and award winners. If you’re in the Denton area, consider entering the 125 mile radius exhibition for 2015.
Thanks to all these wonderful organizations for putting more art out there and inviting us to be a part.
