“I found original art such as; watercolor, acrylic, photography, jewelry, pottery, reclaimed assemblage, creations from nature, glass work, Batik scarves, felted hats, hand painted silk ties, journals….to name just a few. I am pleased to see the community of Crouch support such a worthwhile, and creative cause for the arts. I’ve visited many art galleries over the years, and highly recommend the Garden Valley Art Gallery, in the center of downtown Crouch, Idaho. ”

GARDEN VALLEY CENTER
FOR THE ARTS
Garden Valley Center for the Arts grew out of twin desires to promote local area artists and to continue arts education for children and adults.
GVCA opened in April 2013 with its first gallery show, “Selections from GVart”. By June the Pottery Studio was a reality due to equipment donations from Treasure Valley Community College. Our Education Curriculum included children’s art and music workshops, along with basic drawing and painting classes for adults as well as various other adult classes are offered to encourage adults to learn and CREATE!

“Before I recently moved to Garden Valley,
I discovered GVAC on the internet. I found
a wonderful group of people who love and enthusiastically support the arts in this small mountain community. I enjoy the artist exhibits that they bring in each month and applaud them for how much they do to share art with residents in this entire area."
