December is SEMVA Art Gallery’s Last Month at Peace Plaza

SEMVA Art Gallery’s last day at our current location on the Peace Plaza will be on December 24th, 2015. The Rochester Post-Bulletin has a good article on the background.  Med City Beat also has an article with an interview.

We hope you’ll come in and visit us before 2pm on December 24th where we’ve displayed and shown our art for 23 years.  We’ve enjoyed sharing our art and hope to find a new location soon.

We will continue to have art on display at the DoubleTree Inn on Broadway.

SEMVA will continue as an organization to promote artists and art in Southeast Minnesota.
