Literary Arts Visual Arts LABoratory is the forum where talented people come together to create two galleries of creative expressions.
Through two ports of entry, one for the Visual Arts and one for the Literary Arts, LaVaLab is essentially two complete sites in one.
Why put Visual Artists and Writers under one umbrella, you ask? Because we think both mediums translate seamlessly through the online format. Plus, Visual Artists and Writers typically create their work independently, resulting in fewer networking opportunities than other creative genres.
LaVaLab invites all Artists and Writers to set up a FREE profile including a bio and multiple frames to upload examples of work, complete with the ability to sub-categorize each piece for easy LaVaLabvisitor searches.
Artists and/or Writers can connect with each other, gain a new audience, access potential buyers and promote themselves with LaVaLab. But wait, there's more! LaVaLab Editorials aims to keep our creative talent abreast of relevant industry news, trends, events, competitions and professional opportunities.
How to Post a LaVaLabProfile
LaVaLab is user friendly, FREE and gives each Artist and Writer the ability to manage their own profile.
