Call For Artists: 

Shenandoah Valley Art Center is seeking artists in all 2D and 3D media to create works depicting landmarks, historic buildings and homes, interesting infrastructure, and picturesque vistas local to Waynesboro. This exhibit is open to all Virginia artists.

A June exhibit will showcase all of the works and a limited edition hard bound book will illustrate the project with a selection of the best works included.

Shenandoah Valley Art Center has established a list of landmarks and you will receive your assignment along with your exhibit package, which will be mailed out January 20. Artists may request a specific building or place but we can’t guarantee that you’ll get your first choice.

Here’s how to get in on the fun:

Email SVAC at svartcenter@gmail.com and let us know that you would like to participate.

We will send out location assignments January 20.

Spend some time scoping out your assignment and get creative! If you are assigned a residence (or historic landmark) we may be able to direct you to some reference material to work from as well. If you are working on a residence, please call the owners to tell them you will be scoping out their property beforehand (don’t worry- they’re on board, we just want to give them a head’s up!).

Send 3 hi-resolution photos of your finished work to SVAC by May 6.

We will be selecting works for the book from these photos, so please make sure they are of professional quality.

May 12: Drop work off at SVAC. This work will be displayed and hung at the new 416 Gallery Space.


June 16: Join us for our Solstice Summer Party and LOCAL Opening!

All works should be for sale for this exhibit and there is a special commission structure of 50/50 for this exhibit (it’s a fundraiser for us!).
