About WVA Wisconsin Visual Artists (WVA) is a not-for-profit juried membership-based organization made up of visual artists working in a wide variety of media and supporters of Wisconsin art since the year 1900.


The purpose of the WVA is to promote, develop and encourage the creative visual arts in Wisconsin. WVA produces a quarterly magazine that features two Wisconsin artists in each issue. WVA sponsors the Wisconsin Artist Biennial, an exhibit open to all artist over 18 living in Wisconsin. This is a showcase of some of the best contemporary art in Wisconsin. WVA manages this website, where artist members and gallery/museum members may post their exhibits and events. WVA is one of the co-sponsors for the Wisconsin Visual Art Achievement Award. WVA has a growing endowment that will help to preserve our future.


The WVA artist membership is divided into three chapters: Southeast (SE) in the Milwaukee area; South Central (SC) in the Madison area; and Northeast (NE) in the Appleton/Green Bay area More About WVA.
