The VAS ARCHIVE presents:


Welcome to the first in a series of online exhibitions featuring the work of Valley Art Share members!  Inspired by the word 'Economy' this collection of images and videos were pulled from the VAS archive by Jackie Dougherty and Julia Handschuh.  We believe artists approach and express things in unique and expansive ways.  Economy for this exhibition was taken as both something that is applied to visual material and the subject of the work. 

Some things this makes us think about are:
economy of scale
cash economy
cultural economy
gift giving/gift economy
the land/ecology
production and labor
ephemeral / object / digital art
protest / outrage
fine art / craft


We invite you to post comments or other images to this page below.  We look forward to future online exhibitions and conversations.  If you'd like to propose an exhibition we'd love to hear from you.


Economically Yours,

Jackie & Julia

Thanks for curating this show and including my work!  I agree with KPAO and Jennifer, what a great way to share/view art!

Thanks for including KPAO! art buttons!  Curating collections of work from the site like this is a great idea.  It's interesting to see how changing the context of the individual pieces this way impacts our perception of the work.
