San Vicente Artists of Silver City (SVA) is a not for profit organization for New Mexico art. It was organized in 1992 to promote artists in New Mexico and visual art of the Southwest. The name originates from the historic Silver City name of LaCienega de San Vicente. In recent years many artists have come to Grant County to live in Silver City and surrounding towns. The main purpose of SVA arts organization is to promote local artists young and old to show and sell their artwork.
SVA prints a well-known Gallery & Artists Guide to promote the artists in New Mexico and bring in tourists from the four state areas of New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Texas. The Gallery & Artists Guide, printed in full color, is distributed locally in Silver City, New Mexico and visitor centers in New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Texas.
SVA hosts several juried art shows, sales, and fairs during the year. SVA also hosts and facilitates youth-oriented events: one student art show and one children’s art camp.
