“Our mission is to forge connections among visual artists in the Treasure Valley, to create opportunities for creative collaboration, and to support the artistic community.”
Volunteers wrote the mission statement above. They are the backbone of the Treasure Valley Artists’ Alliance. We have an all-volunteer board of directors and each committee is made up of volunteers who create our wonderful exhibitions, respond to members’ questions, manage our bookkeeping, and facilitate our workshops.

Thank you to our volunteers!
We wish to sincerely thank this year’s volunteers who run the board, facilitate workshops, balance our books, curate our exhibitions, provide food at our events, and answer the call when there is a need.
