About Us

The Girdwood Center for Visual Arts (GCVA) is non-profit cooperative art gallery that hosts more than 30 Alaskan artists who work in a wide variety of media and provides a variety to community events to keep art alive in Alaska.  For more than 25 years, volunteers have selflessly dedicated their time and energy to provide a local venue for artists, encouraging a desire to share and explore art. 

The mission of GCVA is to promote the visual arts; to share in the volunteer effort; to develop a unique gallery for the use of the local arts;  to encourage the development of other artistic opportunities for the public and its members.

GCVA is a registered nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.

The goal of GCVA, to promote art opportunities in the community of Girdwood, has endured since the organization’s inception in 1982.
