Support and enjoy new work by VCCA Fellows.
The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA) provides time and space for national and international writers, visual artists, and composers of talent and promise to bring forth their finest works, because the arts are vital, diversity is a strength, and creativity is essential. As one of the leading artists communities in the world, VCCA has hosted more than 6,000 visual artists, writers, and composers at locations in Amherst, Virginia, and Auvillar, France, since 1971. The artists who come to VCCA, whether emerging or established, are selected by peer review on the basis of the important or innovative work they are doing in their respective fields. In residence, VCCA artist-Fellows are provided with an individual studio, a private bedroom, and three prepared meals a day so they can focus exclusively on their work.
