Eastside arts center puts out call for artists

For 2014, VALA Eastside has launched "ART IS ME," a full year of art programming focused on building art appreciation in the community.

One of many ways to build appreciation for art is giving people an opportunity to interact with a piece beyond just viewing it. Interactions such as touching, listening, smelling and moving create a unique and special relationship between the person and the art.

VALA Eastside's upcoming themed installation “Interactive” aims for that inclusivity.

Local and regional artists in any medium are invited to submit a piece of art that is interactive. This piece will be displayed along with other interactive works at the *VALA Art Center from April 4 to May 29.

This is a juried show and artwork will be selected by VALA Staff. Deadline to Apply is noon Feb. 27.

VALA Eastside [Venues for Artists in the Local Area] is a 501c3 non-profit organization based in Redmond dedicated to connecting artists to artists, artists to the community and the community to art. The VALA Art Center is the hub of art programming for VALA. Located in Redmond Town Center, the VALA Art Center features art installations, events, workshops and residencies for local artists and the community. All programs are free of charge.
