About Vast Shows

Whether you are an Artist or Lover, the shows at The Vast Lab are yours.

As a creative community,  we ask that both our Artists and Lovers participate.

To our Lovers – please donate to the Lab and buy work & merch from our participating Artists.  Spread the word and bring your friends, co-workers, family… hell…bring your enemies too.

To our Artists – we are not a Call for Entry cash machine meaning all shows at The Vast Lab are free to submit to.   When you join us for a given show, we ask that you contribute a small participation fee and help drive attendance through your networks. We also ask from time to time that you volunteer to participate in our VAST Youth Labs which connect working Artists with local kids grades 3-7.

Love – The Vast Lab
