What do you create? How do you do it, and why? Who are your audiences? What are you planning to do next? We are interested!
VALISE Gallery is dedicated to presenting subjects and media that are exciting and unexpected. Our goal is to be a vital and accessible art venue for the community. We hope to stir our audiences and stimulate critical conversations and to keep our members challenged in taking risks to initiate fresh work.
VALISE Gallery is seeking new members. We are a collective of creative individuals who together run the gallery which is located in the downtown core of Vashon Island. VALISE members must live and/or work on Vashon Island.
Please review the benefits and requirements for Member Artists as explained on the "Membership in VALISE" page. If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you. Submit an application as directed below. Applications are generally voted on in the monthly meeting following receipt of a completed application package.
