SVAC Hosts Member's Exhibition, Kids Art Camps

A highlight of the Northshire's winter art season, the Annual Winter Members' Exhibition fills the 10 galleries of the Southern Vermont Art Center's Yester House Gallery in Manchester with some 200 pieces of juried art.

The exhibition will be up through Feb. 2. Gallery admission is $5 for non-members, $3 for students, and members and children under 13 enter free.

The Center will be offering new kids' activities, art camps and after school art classes - and bringing back some annual favorites - starting in February.

On Saturday, Feb. 13 it's the return of SVAC's very popular Teddy Bear Tea Party, from 2-4 p.m. In addition to enjoying tea, juice, sandwiches and sweets, partygoers and their favorite bears will participate in a variety of activities, including crafts and stories.

The February School Break Art Camp, co-hosted by Bogate Designs, returns on Monday, Feb. 15 and runs through Friday, Feb. 19, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This camp features visiting artists teaching two classes per day (morning and afternoon), each covering a different media or activity, and students may enroll in as few or as many as they'd like.

New this Spring, the center will be introducing After School Art Classes starting on Feb. 24 and 25 and continuing each Wednesday and Thursday, from 3:30- 4:45 p.m., through the end of the school year.
