“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."

Take Part

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! 

Upcoming Events

GVCA has sponsored and brought various other arts to the Garden Valley area including chamber music by “Classical Revolution” and  the Ririe-Woodbury  Dance Company which was integrated into the school district for a week of instruction through movement; and other performing artists.   GVCA artists are actively involved in the School by teaching various types of art lessons in the high school art class as well as classes at the Center for adults and students.

Saying About Us

“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.  ”
