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! 

Many joined for the opening reception the first Saturday of the month, from 6:00-8:00 at the Center for the Arts in Downtown Crouch, to enjoy

September's new exhibit--the work of local area artists.
