Submit an Article

The Victorian Artists Society is accepting articles on art and art-adjacent topics. This can include reviews of exhibitions and books, artist profiles, articles on the history of art, responses to previously published articles, and discussions of controversies in the art world—everything from AI to nudity in art. You can get a feel for the kinds of articles we publish by reading some of our past issues here. We are also welcoming submissions of art themed comic strips and cartoons.

Note: Does it all need to be 'essays' (non-fiction): could be fun to put in one art themed short story each issue

The VAS Magazine is sent out digitally to over 500 members, with physical copies available in our Galleries.
