Dear Artists,

I’m writing with exciting news. We are launching an annual Artist Community Award to recognize outstanding artist members whose specific efforts help enrich and strengthen SVAC’s creative community. The winner will receive $3,000 in unrestricted funding and an invitation for a solo exhibition in Yester House in 2025. Two runner-ups will each receive $1,000!

Any artist with an active SVAC artist membership is eligible to apply by August 2. We also welcome nominations from anyone. Nominees will be contacted and invited to apply.

A committee comprised of SVAC representatives will select finalists who provide compelling evidence of:

  • Active participation in SVAC’s creative community, and
  • Commitment to SVAC’s mission of promoting and nurturing the arts.

The inaugural winner of the Artist Community Award will be announced at the Beaux Arts Fête on September 7. This award will be an annual tradition!

The opportunity to launch the Artist Community Award aligns with findings from the 2024 Artist Member Survey. Many, many thanks to the 100 artists who shared their feedback with us. We are still reviewing the data and look forward to sharing more with you at a later date.

Until then, please note that the next Member Exhibition opens on Saturday, November 16. Artwork drop off will take place Monday, October 28–Sunday, November, 3.
