Meet the Exhibiting Artists
VSA Nevada recognizes that ALL artists face challenges in exhibiting and selling their work. This may be especially true for artists who have a disability and why VSA Nevada has established several ways for the public to enjoy and purchase unique work from Nevada’s talented artists.
- VSA Nevada’s “Art Access Gallery” at the Lake Mansion provides a location for artists with disabilities to exhibit and sell their work (85% of each sale to the artist, 15% to VSA Nevada). Artists include: Yonni Coleman, Conner Fogal, Veronica Galati, Jenni F. Harrison, Karen Hildebrand, Ray Johnson, Ric Johnson, Jerry Kingsley, J.M. Lamoreux, Ted Mark, Peggy Mills, Bernard Mvarak, Christopher Parkins, Valerie Parks, Erich Pichler, Norman Platt, Craig Smyres, Rochelle Swanson, and Karen Wheeler. If you would like to learn more about these artists, several have submitted statements below.
Please contact VSA Nevada’s Program Director at 826-6100, ext 2# or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are an artist interested in the “Art Access Gallery”.
- VSA (national) Artists with Disabilities Registry. Are you a visual/performing artist with a disability? Join VSA’s free Artists Registry to receive numerous benefits and exposure. Follow this link to learn more about applying.
- VSA Nevada exhibit/art sales for ALL artists. Periodically VSA Nevada provides an accessible location for artists/crafters to exhibit and sell their work. Opportunities include our annual Holiday Art Mart and a new event, the Annual Flint Street Festival in July. Please contact info@vsanevada if you are intersted in this opportunity.
- VSA Nevada as the beneficiary of art shows. Annually, Connections, an artist collective, produces the yART Sale the second Saturday in July. 20% of all sales are donated to VSA Nevada.
