Dear NVAA members,

    We will be collecting a $25 fee for membership due by June 1st each year.  The good news is that it will also serve as your dues for the year. 

NVAA Board


Greetings and salutations my fellow artists, 
     I'm writing to you all with what's in store for 2024,  the Northern Vermont Artists Association's 93rd year!!  We have multiple shows in the works this year.  We have our annual flagship June show at the Visions of Vermont. The NVAA is also going to be returning to the Westford Public Library for a fall show with a drop off date of September 17.   
     We are also working on two additional shows. The Village Frame Shop had asked us to return after our wonderful fall show there last year.  Finally, and most exciting, we are trying very hard to organize a show at UVM's Fleming Museum, which had hosted the NVAA from the mid 40s to 1973! Some of our older members might remember taking part in those Fleming Shows, and if you do, please feel free to share any of those memories in a separate email. It would be really cool to possibly include them somehow. So the NVAA is gearing up for our 93rd year with a great lineup of shows!
Signing off for now and hopefully will see many of you at our 2024 shows!
Jonathan Brigham
President, NVAA


Good evening fellow artists,
     Here comes your first reminder for the NVAA's 93rd June Show!  Our show is scheduled to go up on Saturday June 1st and run until the end of the month.  Drop off for art is scheduled for Saturday June 1st from 10am-noon. We plan on having our reception on the afternoon of Sunday June 2nd (hopefully the Vermont Fiddle Orchestra will be providing music once again).
     Every artist is allowed two submissions-3D sculptures can be submitted. All entries must be no larger than 28 inches per side not including frame.  All pieces also needs to be gallery ready: clean edges on canvases and wire strung. NO SAWTOOTH HANGERS!  All entries must be original, have not been exhibited in a previous June Show, and be for sale.  I'll write again with further reminders and details about our show and reception.  Also, do not to forget about the Jeffersonville Art Jam. Please contact Monica Hawkes at the Cambridge Arts Council about participating.  
Time to sign off for now. Stay well!
Jonathan Brigham
President, NVAA

Greetings fellow artists,
I'm writing to remind you of the NVAA's upcoming  93rd June Show at the Visions of Vermont. Submissions are starting to come in, but I hope we can top our last year's show!  The deadline for submitting art to the  June Show is May 25th. That's just too weeks away!!! In order to participate, you must be current on your 2024 dues.  All artists are allowed two submissions. To submit, please email clear images to this email address along with :

Artist name
contact information. All 2D art can be no larger than 28in. without frame and must be "gallery ready" (clean finished edges, wire strung, NO SAWTOOTH HANGERS). 3D submissions need to follow similar size restrictions.  Artwork can be dropped off Saturday June 1st from 10am-12pm.  Join us Sunday June 2nd for our opening reception from 1-4pm with music provided by Vermont Fiddle Orchestra, and awards for our winners presented at 3:30pm.  As usual, all artists will be expected to sit with the show.  I will have that ready next week.  
So, I will sign off for now to let you all get working on your submissions (myself included)!
Until next time my fellow NVAAers,
Jonathan Brigham
President, NVAA
