Photography Show – New in 2018!

The Green Mountain Cultural Center and Valley Arts VT are pleased to announce that the Photo Show, presented for nearly 30 years by the GMCC, is now administered by Valley Arts. The show achieved wide recognition under GMCC’s leadership, and both organizations are excited about the opportunities for the continued growth and visibility Valley Arts will offer as the producer of the event.

With the transition, the venue for the Photo Show changed from the Round Barn in Waitsfield to the Galleries in the Big Red Barn at Lareau Farm. The dates of the exhibition also changed — the show is one of Valley Arts’ featured events during its new Barns and Bridges Festival. The show opened on Friday, September 14, with a gala reception attended by more than 175 guests – to rave reviews.  It continued through fall foliage, ending October 7. 

The 2018 Valley Arts Photo Show in the Big Red Barn has been a tremendous success.
With more viewer traffic than ever before and robust sales, The Photo Show has been very happy in its new home!
