  • Important: SVFAL Members submitting artwork must work one 4 hour shift in the Gallery for each month the show is hanging, regardless of number of pieces submitted. By sitting at the desk, each member, in volunteering their time, allows The Red House Studios and Gallery to remain operational during our advertised hours. Please bring your calendar to sign up for gallery sitting when entering your artwork, or SIGN UP ONLINE. Thank you in advance!
