Heart of Virginia Festival 2020 is Canceled 

A Message the President of the HOV Committee:
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Heart of Virginia Festival. This was a very serious decision made to protect the health and safety of all participants, and it was made now out of consideration to our valued sponsors and vendors.

If you are a vendor or sponsor who has already registered for the festival we will be in touch with you next week about your refund.

We look forward to seeing you all at the Heart of Virginia Festival on May 1, 2021.

Susan Sullivan


A Message from Angela Bubash:

I will be contacting those of you who have applied about refunds soon.

Please be patient as I am a volunteer for this event and I have had to completely shift gears at my job and have lost sleep these past couple of weeks trying to stay on top of these challenging times.

Also, can you please be sure you are sending your messages to BOTH Adam Paulek and Angela Bubash, we are the co directors of the show and this will assure a response to your emails.

Thank you so much and hope you are all doing well, Angela Bubash & Adam Paulek
Thanks to All the CVA Members!!!

The CVA could not function without all the wonderful members who contribute their time and resources to support and promote the arts here on the Southside of Virginia.

As of January 31, 2020, (the deadline for paying 2020 dues) the CVA has 95 voting members, including 5 voting business members!
Sales Tax Reminder

This is a reminder that artists are responsible for paying sales tax to the Commonwealth of Virginia on art sale proceeds.

Here is a link to the Virginia Temporary Sales Tax payment eForm. This form is also available on the CVA website on the "CVA Artist Exhibition Forms" page. If you sell more than three times in a year, you will need to register with the VA Department of Taxation.

In the case of Riverside Café sales, Riverside collects the sales tax from the buyer, The CVA then distributes the artist's 70% share of the sale plus 100% of the sales tax collected. 25% of the Riverside Café sales goes to Riverside Café, and 5% goes to the CVA.
