Thank you for your interest in having Volcano Art Center (VAC) represent your work, whether it be through consignment sales or gallery exhibitions.
VACʻs gallery is located within Hawaiíi Volcanoes National Park (HVNP) and is operated under a Cooperative Agreement with the National Park Service as an enhancement to the parkís interpretive programs. Before submitting proposals for consignment sales or exhibitions, artists should think about how their work fits both the mission of VAC and the requirements of HVNP.
VAC’s mission is to promote, develop, and perpetuate the artistic and cultural heritage of Hawai’i’s people and environment through the arts and education. Our agreement with HVNP is that we will offer items which have a direct relationship to the Hawaiian culture, and the scenic and natural values of the Park and Hawai’i. Please consider, and explain, in the provided downloadable forms below, how your work ìInterprets the Park through Artî while also serving VACís organizational mission.
As a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization, VAC relies on membership dues, generous public and private donations, as well as dedicated volunteers to sustain its community outreach and enrichment programs. All artists who submit accepted proposals are required to become VAC members prior to proceeding forth with consignment sales and exhibition agreements.
