AVA, the Association for Visual Arts, is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that works to connect the visual arts and the community-at-large. We do this by providing resources for those who make art (whether professional artists, emerging artists, students or non-artists) and fostering connections among art-makers and audiences.
Today, AVA has a membership of 500, is run by a staff of seven employees and a Board of Directors, and receives support from numerous businesses and public agencies, as well as more than 150 volunteers. Our programs include annual exhibitions in the Main Gallery and the Landis Student Gallery, a Community Arts program that partners AVA with other nonprofit organizations in the Chattanooga area, the Summer Art Camp & Film Institute, Reel Stories Documentary Program, the Digital Media Lab/Clean Room Photo Studio, and the nationally ranked 4 Bridges Arts Festival™.
