Opportunities for Artists

New Changes to AVA’s Exhibition Schedule!

AVA is pleased to announce that after twenty successful Juried Summer Exhibitions, we will be switching to a Biennial Juried Summer Exhibition. Going forward, the exhibition will come with a much larger prize opportunity: the winners of the Juror’s Recognition Awards and the Cornelia M. Rahmelow Photography Prize will have their work featured in a summer exhibition the following year.

As a result of this exciting change, in summer 2014, we will feature the work of the artists who received Juror’s Recognition Awards in 2013—Toby Bartles of White River Jct., VT; Michael Heffernan of Newbury, VT; and Joseph Saginor of Cornish, NH—and work by the 2013 winner of the Cornelia M. Rahmelow Photography Prize, Leah Berry of Canaan, NH.



We are extending the deadline of proposals for Kira's Garden.

Artists interested in submitting a proposal for 2014 may download an application here or request one by calling AVA at 603.448.3117

Deadline for proposals is now April 28, 2014.
