About VFAA:
The VFAA was formed in early 2005 to create art, teach techniques and encourage fellowship among visual artists in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. We strive to promote a supportive attitude toward visual arts in our Alaskan community. 

We welcome beginners, students, part-time and professional artists who focus mainly on two-dimensional art mediums and want to connect with other creative people and gain more exposure locally.

Throughout the year, we inform our members about opportunities to show their work, participate in group events, view other local artists and enroll in workshops. During the school year, we organize regular sessions for painting together and host monthly artist demonstrations at Mat-Su College. 

Membership in the Valley Fine Arts Association provides many diverse opportunities for artists. Check our website calendar for upcoming events.
