    The Shenandoah Valley Art Center, during the month of October, is exhibiting in the Cabell/Arehart Gallery the artwork of the Beverly Street Studio School. Located in downtown Staunton, the School distinguishes itself 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 artists are in perpetual growth, rebirth and development. A selection of 2017 class and workshop instructors and students will be exhibiting. In the Members’ and Hallway Galleries, the theme is Artist’s Choice. SVAC members, through a variety of media and creative ideas, will present selected works of art.
