AVCA Gallery Closing

After much soul searching, the AVCA board has decided to discontinue our tenancy in the Arcade location. We will redouble our efforts to find a new home that is more suitable to our needs, and in the meantime remain as active in the local art scene as ever. As an organization we will continue to work with local business’ to hang our art, support, educate and guide our artists, with traveling shows, art events & continued demos.

AVCA President Zach Tanner would love to hear any  thoughts, ideas, needs, or wants regarding the future of AVCA from current and former members and other allies of the Auburn arts. You can email him at auburnartscoop@yahoo.com.

Any work currently in the gallery will need to be picked up by July 1.
