Who We Are

The Visual Arts Studio Association – better known as VASA – is a non-profit organization of artists and art appreciators. We are run by artists, for artists.

What We Do

VASA exists to support the new, emerging, and professional artists of St. Albert and the Edmonton Capital Region. We bring together artists and audiences in a dialogue of cultural and artistic diversity.

We cultivate a community of diverse artists and support them by providing work spaces, exhibition spaces, professional development opportunities, and arts advocacy.

We encourage the public to engage with and help foster relationships with the visual arts by providing programming, art exhibitions, and the unique opportunity to visit our Resident Artists in their studios.

We Believe

  • Our members, staff, volunteers and supporters are valuable contributors.
  • In diverse visual arts practice at all levels.
  • In being an inclusive, democratic society.
  • In being a sustainable organization.
  • In being ethical and safe.
