Wildlife Among the Trees--
Watercolors by Boise artist Jennie Kilcup   

Coming from a long line of artists, Jennie took her first art class at the age of 8 and never looked back. The show she's sharing with us this September includes her original Wildlife Among the Trees watercolors as well as select paintings from her other collections of outdoor-celebrating subjects.  Prints, cards, playing cards, mugs and pins feature her images.

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 at its first location with its first gallery show, “Selections from GVart”. Check out the tab for previous Exhibits to see the many wonderful shows that the gallery has provided for the local community to enjoy.

Our presence continues to evolve, with a move to our present location opening in March of 2019 with the annual STUDENT ART SHOW.

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 schools teaching various types of art lessons in the high school art class as well as classes at the Center for adults and students.
