2024 Winter Show: Resolutions


The Visual Art Society of B-CS invites submissions to “Resolutions”. This winter exhibition will be on display in the gallery at The Arts Council of Brazos Valley  January 12-February 8, 2024, and is open to all artists. We accept works from emerging, mid-career, and/or professional artists. For this exhibition, we encourage artists to explore the theme of new beginnings by thinking about the challenges, rewards and images of starting over, as well as the power of art to help us visualize our hopes and dreams for the future. This prompt is very open and subject to many different interpretations. Each artist can submit up to 6 pieces.

Acceptable mediums include Acrylic, Charcoal, Collage, Color Pencil, Computer Art, Digital Art, Digital Photography, Drawings, Fiber Arts, Glass Art, Graphite, Gouache, Illustration, Mixed Media, New Media, Oil, Pastel, Pen and Ink, Printmaking, Sculpture, Studio Fine Crafts, Traditional Photography, or Watercolor and others.

All submissions must be family-friendly. Entries cannot have been exhibited in a previous Visual Art Society or Brazos Valley Art League show.

All artists are welcome to submit up to 6 pieces, but if you are a member, you will have a reduced entry fee. Our student members will get 50% off the entry fee using the coupon code: 3EMMEYFN when they pay.

Images of the entry/entries must be submitted by jpg, jpeg files (SRGB or RGB profile, no larger than 4 MB) for jurying into the show. Uploading of images is part of the entry process for jurying and more information is provided on the entry form. Your images should be sharp & clear. Your images must not include matting or framing, only the piece of art itself. It is important that your work be well represented. Images of accepted works may be posted on the VAS website along with award winning artists from the show. By entering you grant permission to VAS reproduce the artwork in the
marketing materials or on the VAS website, for promotional and educational purposes.

VAS reserves the right to refuse to show any entry not accurately represented by the images submitted during entry or not suitably presented for exhibition. 

Accepted entries for the show must be wired properly for hanging so the hanging committee does not have problems. If any of the pieces are extremely heavy or particularly fragile in framing, they will not be included in the exhibit without advanced special arrangements with the hanging committee. No saw tooth hangers or clip on frames will be accepted. All artwork must be completely dry and ready to hang or display when submitted during intake for the show/exhibit. VAS reserves the right to exclude works from the exhibition that are not gallery-ready and professional in presentation.

All sculptures/pottery must have a stable base.

Drawings and pastels must be under glass or acrylic.

The following information must be attached to back of the art work: Artist Name, Mailing Address, Phone, Email, Selling Price, Title, and Medium.  This label form may be downloaded and used but is not required.

Artists are responsible for all delivery, pick up and insurance for the works submitted. 


The Brazos Valley Art League, dba Visual Art Society of Bryan-College Station, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization operated by volunteers who are artists and art appreciators, for artists, with no reserve or endowment. All proceeds from entry fees fund project-related expenses. Not unlike paying a fee to enter a marathon race, your entry fee democratically enables our organization’s projects to happen. For over a 50 years the Visual Art Society has earned a reputation for producing quality exhibits, benefitting the artists involved and the public, on its meager budget. Our all volunteer board of directors and small dedicated team of members work hard to make involvement with VAS projects well worth the effort and cost to do so.

Simply by participating in a VAS project or becoming a member you are helping this grass-roots organization do its work and achieve its mission.


Preferably, all entries should be submitted online using the correct form by using the buttons below.

Entry fee for VAS members is $30 for up to 3 entries. Additional 4-6 entry fee for members is $20. Entry fee for nonmembers is $45 for up to 3 entries. Additional 4-6 entries for nonmembers is $30. Nonmembers may join VAS to receive discounted entry fees. Student members will get 50% off entry fee using the coupon code: 3EMMEYFN when they pay.
