About SVAC

The Shenandoah Valley Art Center

Founded in 1986, SVAC aims to increase arts awareness and education in the Shenandoah Valley while fostering create and economic opportunity for artists.

We are proud to welcome artists of all ages and skill levels and encourage the sharing of ideas and inspiration in our building in downtown Waynesboro. In 2007 we moved into the fully renovated Gaw Building at 122-6 S. Wayne Avenue where we have a large light filled gallery, 8 artist studios, an educational studio for pottery and printmaking, classroom space, and a gift shop. We offer classes, lectures, and other educational and social arts programming, including weekly classes for kids.
