Studio Tours April 6

As a prelude to the Heart of Virginia Festival and to celebrate our more than 30 years of service to the local community, artists affiliated with Central Virginia Arts are opening their studios to the public from 11 am to 2 pm, on Saturday, April 6. It’s an opportunity to meet the artists, see their work, and ask questions about the creative process. What a great way to spend a Saturday in early spring!

This year’s studio tours will highlight the diversity of our artists, including painters, sculptors, and model makers. 

Two studios at different locations will be open from 11 am to 2 pm:
Richard and Deborah McClintock at 1001 Fourth Avenue Extended, in Farmville, and
Lisa Hoffman at 988 Sulphur Spring Road, in Prospect

Visit the studio of your choice or both. Refreshments will be available. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon.

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.
