The Vault Gallery

The Vault Gallery is a new exhibit venue for the Center for the Visual Arts. During the historic building
renovation, the CVA relocated the Gift Shop to the Third Street Lifestyle Center in Washington Square.
The main floor of the building had been transformed into a NEW Gallery.

The CVA would like to thank and recognize the B.A. & Esther Greenheck Foundation for their support of the Vault Gallery. The CVA received grant and community support to enhance the gallery with moveable exhibit walls, walker system, lighting, reception desk, data, storage units & shelves, kitchen appliances, and more!

The renovation has revealed long since forgotten historical aspects of the original bank building, including the original vault door! Plan to visit the CVA and view the new Vault Gallery, Pottery Studio, and Education Studio Room.

The CVA runs on Volunteer support. If you are interested in being a Vault Gallery Greeter, please sign up by clicking the button below!

The Vault Gallery

"The Reveal" exhibit featuring Christine Alfery is the first exhibit to be shown at the CVA within the NEW Vault Gallery. The gallery emerged out of the renovation as the previous gift shop and business office walls came down one by one. The gallery features an open floor concept, high beams, marble walls, wood floor, original windows & wood moldings (now fully exposed on the interior due to the removal of the numerous drop ceilings), and the recently discovered original vault door! The CVA is pleased to exhibit Christine's artwork and looks forward to featuring other local, regional, and national artists as the year progresses.

"The Reveal"

Colors, motion, emotion, and flight are represented in Christine's artwork in "The Reveal" exhibit. Each work of art depicts a piece of Christine's creativity and method. The exhibit leaves both a dramatic and whimsical impression. Christine's powerful color choices and spontaneous actions emerge off the canvas and reveal new sensory sensations.
