The center has a wide selection of locally made crafts and fine art pieces for sale. There are working artist studios on both floors. The art is for sale. Range is from jewelry to fiber art to paintings. They had cute greeting cards. The staff was friendly.

Friendly staff! Beautiful gallery & open artists' studios with unique & varied art! Wonderful gift shop featuring local artists (local handmade is always the best option) whose work demonstrates skill & passion. Worth the trip!

This is an interesting place. This is not just an old art museum, but has several genres of art. Enjoy being hear and not watching the news.

It is always interesting to see what towns have to offer. This one was particularly limited in items of display. If in the city I would check it out, but wouldn't make a stop because of it.

What a wonderful gallery! Monthly exhibits, fabulous gift shop full of local artisans. The gallery has artists-in-residence. Not to be missed in the Blue Ridge town of Waynesboro, VA., just off I-64. Good local restaurants near by.

Wonderful Art Gallery - always interesting shows - sometimes a youth group but most often an outstanding show by a Virginia Artist. Ceramic, glass, paintings - the shows vary throughout the year and are never a disappointment. My latest visit was with family from out of town and they had an enjoyable experience. Several things there on my "want list." Always more that I want to take home than $ allows. Picking and choosing and deciding what now - what later.

One of my favorite "viewing" and shopping places. Typically there is a new show opening once a month (this month it's their "40 Under 40" - encouraging younger artists.

I went to the opening this last Saturday evening and there were some real winners that I would love to take home. Some large, some clever, some beautiful and some that make you scratch your head ... isn't that what art should do ... make you think?
Prices from very reasonable all the way (for me) to yikes.

There is a shop at the center where you can always find something to go on your wall or table. In the hallway and upstairs each month are new "member" pieces that are also for sale or just to enjoy. I've also signed up for some classes there - from pottery to wreath making. And, if you attend one of their monthly openings you'll even find some tempting free snacks. What could be better - art, food, an opportunity to chat with the artists - one of my favorite types of entertainment.

A lovely size that exhibits truly noteworthy art. I've been two times in the last 6 months and have enjoyed seeing the talents of local artists, the exhibited pieces as well as the artist at work in their studios. A lovely gift shop and a lovely little downtown location to get a bite to eat, as well. Having lived in Northern Virginia for years, it is fun to spend a few hours enjoying the art, the food, the mountains, and the lack of traffic and rush!

What a great stop. Rotating exhibits every few months. Welcoming artists with studios upstairs. Friendly greeters and gift shop. My kids enjoyed the class they took on a Saturday morning. Unique experiences for all.

The SVAC is a members gallery of local and regionally known artists and crafts people to display their works and offer them for sale. People who visit are treated to an eclectic mix of media, methods, and abilities reflected in the items being shown....a member or two will be present to answer questions and serve as cashier for sales. Prices are not negotiable (and seem to be fixed by the artists to include a gallery commission)...some printed information about the artist or craftsperson may be available on request.

The works offered and exhibited are juried by the SVAC to uphold a basic level of achievement and skill. As you may expect, the subject matter varies widely as do the techniques and talents employed. It is quite an eclectic place....but you may be lucky and hit upon an emerging artist or the next breakout crafts person at SVAC. If you like an item, buy it ...it likely will be gone by the next time you visit! (My wife likes her new earrings and wears them regularly....so birthday gift purchases and doing Christmas shopping are good ideas here.)

Recommended as a good rainy day activity for families with some extra spending money, but not a place for small active children for whom the temptations of "you touch, you break, you buy" may be too much for the family budget.
