Guild Guide - December 2023

The New Year is almost here! We will be starting off 2024 a little bit slower to give everyone a much needed break! There are still things that we would like you to know about so you can mark your calendars.


You can also check out Upcoming Events on the VVAG website any time with our new easy tab under Events. We will be sending out reminders a few days before each event.


If you have any questions please reach out at service@vvagco.org


First and foremost, we would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!


Thank you to everyone who supports the VVAG and our mission of "enriching lives by fostering and promoting artistic growth and building awareness of the visual arts in Eagle County."


We could not do it without all our supporters, partners and sponsors!
