A few times a year, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts at Mt. San Angelo opens to the public for Open Studios. These days offer a special opportunity to step inside VCCA’s Studio Barn complex, where writers, visual artists, and composers from across the nation and around the world come to pursue their creative work.
Participating artists in residence will open their individual VCCA studios to the community. You’re invited to come see what they’re working on and to chat with them about their creative processes. Visitors are also welcome to take a self-guided tour of the grounds and VCCA’s outdoor art collection during Open Studio hours. Light refreshments will be served.
Up Next: Spring Open Studios
Date: Sunday, April 2, 2023
