The R.R. Smith Center for History & Art is home to the Staunton Augusta Art Center ("SAAC") and includes galleries, classrooms, archives, conference space, a garden, and offices for non-profit cultural organizations. Located in Staunton’s Beverley Historic District, the building is an 1894 hotel designed in the French Second Empire style by Staunton architect, T.J. Collins.

SAAC’s state-of-the-art galleries, competitive exhibit selection process, and free access provide a welcoming setting for visitors to view and purchase excellent art year-round.  Every two years, we invite applications from individual artists, curators, and groups for solo and group shows. Artwork encompassing a full range of styles, techniques, and content will be considered, and work representing new or traditionally underrepresented perspectives and experiences is particularly welcome.  

Applications are no longer being accepted at this time. 

The next Call for Entries is scheduled for fall 2022.
