The reception at the VAS Village Green Gallery was also the place to meet new and seasoned artists, and make new friendships and connections. The VAS board was there to answer questions about volunteering, workshops, meetings, benches (our Take a Seat Vienna Returns next year!) or our many other activities in the community.
