Dearest V+V Community:
As the impact of COVID-19 increases we have regretfully decided to temporarily close both V+V studio locations, effective November 30, 2020. The health and safety of our artists and staff is of the utmost importance to us. Due to the diligence of our staff and artists following strict safety precautions, we’ve been fortunate to not have any known cases. We want to keep it that way. We will continue to monitor the situation to determine when it is appropriate to reopen.
Although our studios and gallery will be temporarily closed, we remain committed to staying connected with our community. We will still be offering remote virtual services to artists who are interested.
If you are able to help us to bridge our expenses during this closure, here is how to do it:
V+V Artists: We already miss you! Wishes for a happy and safe holiday and we look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks.
Thank you for your continuing support.
Peace, Love, and Health,

Robyn Winkler, Executive Director
