The downstairs hallway is reserved for our Member’s Themed Exhibit each month. All SVAC members are encouraged to exhibit! Please visit the Membership tab for more information on the schedule of exhibits and how to participate.
Our light filled upstairs hallway gallery showcases local and regional art groups, and sometime SVAC member work. Groups such as the Blue Ridge Region of Virginia Art Educators Association, the Paletteers, and others host annual exhibits in this space. Are you part of an art group, even an informal club? Please inquire about getting on the calendar.
Gift Shop Gallery
Our gift shop features handmade works from local and regional artists and fine artisans. There is also limited wall space available for SVAC members to showcase a grouping of 2D works. Please call Eileen at SVAC to arrange a mini-exhibit in the shop. Works are often scheduled around the seasons to help us maintain a relevant and energetic display.
