The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA) is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we’re staying active with a variety of virtual initiatives. Applications for 2020 residencies and fellowships are closed; however, we are accepting applications for the 2021 Wachtmeister Award, open to established visual artists who are new to VCCA.
Since 1971, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA) has provided uninterrupted time and space for artists to produce the finest works of literature, visual art, and music. VCCA hosts over 400 Fellows each year at two locations: Mt. San Angelo in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Amherst, Virginia, and the Moulin à Nef, in Auvillar France.
At VCCA, I had everything I needed. I was completely unhindered. As I said to many other Fellows during my stay, "If you can’t produce here, you can’t produce."
