Visual Arts Cooperative Committee (VACC)
16C North Spanish Street

The Visual Arts Cooperative Committee is a juried cooperative of visual artists from the Southeast Missouri Region, working as a committee of the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri. Each artist is able to display one piece of original artwork for sale each month of the year with a special spring exhibit featuring three pieces. Additionally, member artists sell multiple “minis,” or artwork that is between 8" and 10" and priced underneath $75.

As a cooperative, artists are responsible for more than submitting their work – they are members of teams that install work, greet guests at opening receptions, and support one another.


How can I apply?
Artists interested in joining the VACC can apply online by submitting 6 digital images (1 view for 2D, 2 views for 3D) of recent work. Resumes and artist statements are encouraged, but not required. Online entry form is available here

When will I be notified?
Applicants will be contacted once their entry is received and notified of acceptance within 4-6 weeks of submission.

Who can I talk to for more information?
VACC members would love to speak to you during our opening receptions, always taking place on the First Friday with the Arts on the first Friday of the month from 5:00 – 9:00 pm.

If you have specific questions, please contact Brian Alworth, Co-Chair of the VACC.
