What's Up at the SFVACC for November
So much is going on for the end of 2018! Our Jazz Muse Concert offers up renowned jazz pianist, Kenny Werner along with Janis Mann, vocals on November 17. Kenny will be playing a Mason & Hamlin Semi-Concert Grand piano courtesy of Hollywood Piano Company. The Collage Artists of America exhibit "Trash Talk" continues through Saturday, Nov. 24...don't miss it! Then our always popular "Uncommon Threads III" exhibit starts on Tuesday, Nov. 27. For wonderfully creative and artsy gifts, be sure to shop at the Uncommon Threads Marketplace. We have expanded the Marketplace this year, so you'll have more wonderful smaller items to purchase. Chanukah and Christmas are right around the corner!
Happy Birthday to Us!
With so much going on in October, our 4th birthday slipped right by without a celebration. On October 22, 2014, the SFVACC opened its doors with our "No Boundaries" exhibit. Seems like it was just yesterday that we had 300 people waltzing through the Center for our ribbon cutting. Since then the Center has presented nearly 60 exhibits. Many thanks to our donors, members, our family of art organizations (and non-art orgs as well.) We appreciate all who have contributed to the SFVACC's success.
2018 is a Banner Year for SFVACC
It's official! Our 15 double-Unit banners will be installed toward the end of November. It took quite a bit of negotiation to secure the right streetlights, but there will be at least 6 banners along Reseda between Oxnard and Hatteras and also along the south side of Oxnard between Reseda and Etiwanda. Thanks to our 15 artists who have been so patient with all of this. The banners will be up for at least a year and we are hoping that they will guide more visitors to our Center.

"Uncommon Threads" back for a third year
The Third Annual "Uncommon Threads" exhibit and Marketplace opens on Tuesday, November 27 with a reception on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 5 - 8 pm. Our two organizations, Frayed Edges and Surface Art Association will present fiber art from 26 different artists. This is our end-of-the-year exhibit that makes anyone who experiences it smile.
Calling all Volunteers!
The SFVACC has started a new concept for sitting the Center. We will be putting together a team of professional docents to watch over the Center during our exhibits. These docents will be trained in everything they need to know about running the Center and being a welcoming representative behind the reception desk. Organizations can also have their members keep our professional docents company, if they so wish. We will need to fill forty 3-hour shifts during each of our 2019 4-week exhibits. So think about joining our team and immerse yourself in all that creative energy at the Center! Click here for the application.
