Every summer, Visual Arts at Chautauqua Institution (VACI) presents 11 exhibitions in the newly renovated Strohl Art Center, Fowler-Kellogg Art Center and the Melvin Johnson Sculpture Garden. These diverse spaces allow VACI to host a variety of contemporary shows from nationally recognized artists. VACI strives to exhibit a balance of two- and three-dimensional works, specifically curated for its gallery spaces. The focus in our galleries is on contemporary work in a wide range of media and sensibilities.

This summer, VACI is proud to present an exhibition of works by historically renowned artist Charles Burchfield in cooperation with the Burchfield-Penney Art Center in Buffalo, NY. There will also be exhibitions of works by contemporary artists as well as surveys of national and regional art, and the highly popular Annual School of Art Student Exhibition. The season begins on Sunday, June 22 with several gallery openings from 3 - 5 p.m., including the 57th Chautauqua Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art.  Internationally renowned critic Jerry Saltz is the juror for this show, which takes place during the first half of the session in the museum quality Strohl Art Center.  Since 2006 Saltz has been senior art critic and a columnist for New York magazine. Formerly the senior art critic for The Village Voice, Saltz has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in Criticism three times.  He and Roberta Smith, his wife of 30 years, have been described as a power couple who "shape the New York art conversation, providing competing and compelling points of view in the world’s art capital."

VACI looks forward to presenting these, and many other outstanding exhibitions this summer.
