Do you have a studio in Waynesboro, Staunton, Augusta or Nelson County?
For one weekend each year we host an Open Studio Tour to help artists share their work and to allow visitors to see the creative process at work!
You need to be open for the whole weekend to participate. The cost is $40 for SVAC members and $50 for non-members.
Send us an email if you are interested (svartcenter@gmail (dot) com) We will ask you for pictures of your work and a little about your space to make sure you are a good fit. You are also welcome to partner up- grab some of your friends and throw a weekend studio party!

Lots of great wall space- up high over shelves and in the entrance foyer. This space holds a TON of art- 20 or 30 works. They are up high so bright pieces that can be viewed from far away are best. They also have also have two locking display cases that have been used in the past to display pottery as well as installation pieces. We are very flexible in terms of display space and would like to find artists with larger pieces. We encourage artist of all mediums both 2-d and 3-d to contact us.
