ShenArts supports the arts through programming, instruction and exhibition

and expands arts awareness to the community of the Northern Shenandoah Valley. 




Just a few weeks ago, a local volunteer made a video on Facebook to launch a challenge asking friends to do 2 things: Donate $100 to ShenArts, and challenge 3 additional friends to do the same! With a goal to raise $10,000, we are more than 1/3 of the way! 

We hope that you will join these donors as “Friends of ShenArts” by donating an annual gift in support of the arts and programs we provide.  Donations can be made by clicking “Support” in the top right corner or by mail to the ShenArts address listed above, and ALL donations are greatly appreciated.



Since 2009, the Old Town Development Board (OTDB) and the Shenandoah Arts Council (ShenArts) have partnered and collaborated to bring an outdoor gallery to the historic downtown area of Winchester. This year, additional support is being provided by the MSV. Artists of all ages are invited to participate in this juried art competition, with selected artwork being reproduced on banners that will then hang on the light posts throughout the downtown area from April through December.

Deadline for you art to be considered is January 13th by 5:00pm

Artists will be notified of selection January 18th.
