The Shenandoah Valley Art Center, during the month of September, is exhibiting in the Cabell/Arehart Gallery the artwork of the Beverly Street Studio School. Located in downtown Staunton, BSSS began with a group of five inspired artists who wanted to practice, learn, exhibit, and expose their community to the world of visual arts. Twenty-five years later, it is an established organization, an integral part of the local and regional cultural community. 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. An opening will be held Saturday, September 2, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and the public is encouraged to come and meet the artists.

To serve the public through active community engagement and by providing trusted and valued services and high quality content to educate, enlighten, lead, inspire and entertain.
