33rd Annual Juried National Show

September 4, - October 6, 2018
Juror is Acclaimed Artist Robert Burridge

JULY 16 – Notification of Acceptance Status will go out
Thank you to all the talented artists that entered! There were a record number of artists and entries. I don’t envy our juror, Bob Burridge — he has his work cut out for him!

As you probably have figured out, this show is not only NVAL’s effort to put on a great exhibit, but also is a major fund-raiser for us. We receive no outside funding….. So thank you again!!!
