The 37th annual Valley Visual Art Show begins Friday night at The Launchpad in Carbondale.


The 50 artists exhibiting their work include emerging artists and professionals. There are middle-schoolers and even senior citizens. Each artist will display one work.  


This will make for quite a variety. There’ll be landscapes, abstract art, sculptures and even some mixed media; and it’s all for sale. Like last year, every piece on display is a contender for the People’s Choice Award, which visitors vote on.


A good number of the artists will attend the opening event, which starts at 6 p.m on Friday. The exhibit will be up until Feb. 17.
