A Call to Artists! 

Huntington Valley Arts has started an Event Series on Wednesday nights 6:30 – 8pm. We are currently looking for teens and adult artists and craftspeople who would be interested in sharing their work, in a presentation style format, at the Huntington Public Library. Huntington Valley Arts @ Night will be free and open to anyone who is interested in learning about different artistic processes and viewing the artist’s work. The show and tell portion will be followed by a Q&A, afterwards there will be the opportunity to socialize and meet a few neighbors. A schedule of the events will be shared and updated here as people sign up.

Please fill out this form and be sure to include your contact information. We’ll reach out with more details soon. Also, feel free to email us huntingtonvalleyarts@gmail.com or call/ text Meg Northrop at 802-238-0198 or Meghan Purvis Okolita at 802-777-9292.

The cadence and format of Huntington Valley Arts @ Night will be driven by community engagement, so please sign up, reach out and come to the events. We look forward to spending a few cold nights together talking about art and building community.
