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
