About REVERB  |  VAS Annual Exhibition 2022

The exhibition is now closed - with huge thanks to all involved!

19 March 2022 - 29 April 2022

This VAS exhibition is the most extensive in recent years with over 150 artists showing more than 250 works across seven programmes. The Council, who are volunteers from the membership, recognise the importance of encouraging and supporting as many disciplines and artforms as possible to reflect the depth and breadth of practices thriving  in Scotland today. As such, this exhibition will present Moving Image and Performance works, the first time that VAS has had a specific open call for these mediums. REVERB celebrates the resolve and innovation within our creative community in this vibrant digital exhibition

About VAS

Visual Arts Scotland (VAS) is a volunteer, artist-run society and a leading platform for national and international contemporary artists.
The society was originally founded in 1924 as an organisation for women artists and since the 1980s has championed craftspeople, makers, designers and applied arts practitioners. Today, our membership comprises fine and applied artists, celebrating the best in innovative contemporary visual arts. The conversation between disciplines, to encourage challenging and ambitious ideas, is at the heart of Visual Arts Scotland’s mission.
VAS has a vibrant, active and participatory membership of over 1000 practicing artists. The society provides a platform to support and connect them, and to showcase their work through a year round programme of activities, events, funding, exhibitions and residency opportunities.
