Beverley Street Studio School: GERMINATION
Beverley Street Studio School (BSSS), located in downtown Staunton, began with a group of five inspired artists who wanted to practice, learn, exhibit, and expose their community to the world of visual arts. Twenty-five years later, it is now an established organization and integral part of the local and regional cultural community. The School distinguishes itself from other art organizations in the region by offering year round non-degree college-level art classes to the serious art student. In addition to the core curriculum and as part of the School’s mission to make art accessible to everyone in the community, BSSS offers: an art gallery with rotating exhibits by guest artists, instructors and students; several offsite exhibit opportunities; a high quality Travel Study program; Open Session figure drawing; the Queen City Plein Air Festival; and numerous free community programs including monitored art discussions, lectures, and peer critiques.
The theme of "Germination" was chosen in honor of the School’s 25th anniversary and to emphasize how BSSS and all artists are in perpetual growth, rebirth and development. A selection of 2017 class and workshop instructors and students will be exhibiting.
An opening will be held Saturday, September 9 6-8pm
In the Members’ Gallery, we will feature works from our members. The theme is Artist's Choice, so there's a little of everything!
Our gift shop features affordable local and regional artist's works including jewelry, prints, cards, pottery, glass, and so much more! The work changes frequently so come soon and come often.
We also have gift certificates so you can give the gift of ART!

Bring your spare change with you! Shenandoah Valley Art Center is challenging visitors to help us fill up three huge containers of change to help us bring the 416 Studio project to life. A little change makes a BIG impact! Jars will be at SVAC, in the Food Court, and at the Information Booth.
