The Center for Visual Artists (CVA) mission is to support to emerging artists of all ages through educational programs, exhibition opportunities, and community outreach.

The CVA Gallery's primary objective is to propel emerging artists' careers by cultivating their talent in a modern space. The Gallery generates new membership by providing artist-focused discussions and workshops, networking opportunities and rental space. These services facilitate growth and professional development for artists, strengthen bonds between the CVA and local communities, and allow us to share our space by visually engaging the viewer. We showcase innovative techniques and nontraditional mediums, and often prime artists to move onto greater exposure and success. The CVA Gallery is an important element in creating an atmosphere that encourages involvement from residents, visitors and exhibiting members.
