PROSPECTUS

18th SVAC ANNUAL EXHIBITION

THIS YEAR’S SHOW TITLE IS:

"BEGINNING ANEW"

January 31st – February 10th 2019
Sedona Arts Center – Special Exhibition Gallery
15 Art Barn Rd., Sedona, AZ 86336

Opening Reception:  Friday, February 1st - 5:00 – 8:00pm
Gallery Hours:  10:00am – 5:00pm Daily

SVAC artists are encouraged to join together to create innovative works celebrating our Annual Exhibition entitled
 “Beginning Anew”

We hope that you will embrace the title and we know that you will create new and exciting works for all of the Verde Valley community to see.

What does “Beginning Anew” mean to you?  Does the title bring to mind change, moving on from a personal challenge, a new artistic challenge or, perhaps, looking forward to Spring?

SVAC exhibitions are always a wonderful opportunity for members to get to know one another and share the camaraderie of a group experience.  Will you be participating in the Spring Open Studio Tour in April?  SVAC’s Annual Exhibition is a wonderful way to showcase your art work.

HAPPY CREATING
