All Salida-area artists are invited to submit their work for exhibition in the prestigious annual "Valley Visions Art Exhibition”, sponsored by the Salida Council for the Arts. Deadline for entries in the 2016 show is Friday, April 8.

Designed as a showcase for the area's top creative talent, the non-juried exhibit will be on display May 5-25 in the Salida SteamPlant Annex. All entries will be for sale, with 80% of proceeds going to the artist and 20% to benefit the SteamPlant.

The popular exhibition will kick off with a gala public Grand Opening Reception on Friday, May 6 from 4-7 pm. The event will feature gourmet hors d'oeuvres, live entertainment, cash bar, "meet the artist" opportunities, voting and presentation of People's Choice Award winners.

Valley Visions is open to all greater Salida area (40-mile radius) artists, photographers, artisans and sculptors; one entry per person. Winners will receive cash and/or merchandise prizes donated by local businesses. The show and winners will be heavily publicized throughout the Rocky Mountain region; and many entries traditionally sell at the Grand Opening Reception.

Because of space limitations, this highly popular show is limited to the first 40 entries received. For complete information, application instructions, and printable entry forms, go to
