The show's goals are to stimulate an aggressive art-making marathon right away at the beginning of the year as well as provide gallery visitors the ability to collect small works from many artists. This is Var’s 7th year holding this exhibition and overall interest for the showcase continues to grow for artists and gallery patrons. Last year’s submission count hit over 130 and has an estimated 4,000 virtual visitors along with hundreds of private in-person appointments, dwarfing the previous years' attendance.
