With our long-term partners, including schools and youth organizations, we focus on supporting and nurturing the voices, hearts and minds of student artists in all formats - visual, photographic, and digital art, film, media, music, dance, and theatre.
Art becomes the starting point of a larger life process to help students create their artistic visions while inspiring others. Our collective effort is centered on “Imagine, Believe, Create, Become!” This process is paramount in encouraging aspiring student artists to implement the creative thoughts that can positively impact themselves, their families, schools and communities.
The CVCAF Gallery opened its original gallery in Palm Desert, CA in 2009 and recently moved to a larger location on El Paseo Drive, Palm Desert in 2021 with consultancies in San Diego, Beijing, Paris (France), and Tel Aviv.
Proceeds of art donations sold in our gallery or online go toward supporting our student art awards and educational outreach programs.
We feature donated original art and bronzes of 19th and 20th-century international artists including Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Pierre Laprade, Eugène Julien Massé, Fernand Pinal, Eugène Galien-Laloue, Frederic Ede and Auguste Rodin. Our 21st century artists include Alexandra Nechita, Ma Bing, Fabian Perez, Fernand Léger, Alexandre Renoir, Pierre R. Renoir, Jean-Emmanuel Renoir, Vojkan Begovic, Leroy Neiman, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Mary Frank and others.
Please contact us at the CVCAF Gallery to discuss our specific art donation guidelines. Art donations can be tax-deductible; however, we encourage you to consult with your tax professionals to determine deductible amounts.
Our donated artworks are available for viewing and purchase online and/or at our CVCAF Gallery.
President and Co-Founder Caroline Victoria Coldicutt Arts Foundation CVCAF Gallery
The Caroline Victoria Coldicutt Arts Foundation was formed in 2006 to commemorate the artistic passion of Caroline Victoria Coldicutt (1987 – 2004), a gentle, beautiful young woman with a rare artistic talent and an infinite love of the arts. Caroline Victoria’s dance through her brief life was one of singular grace and delicate joy. She died at age 17 but her artistic legacy lives on through the CVC Arts Foundation and its support and encouragement of other student artists.
CVC Arts has donated over 100+ art scholarships and donated funding for art/media education outreach programs to over 30 schools and non-profits in the US, Canada, England, and Bali.
The foundation introduced the
Caroline Victoria Rose – A Rose for the
Arts at the Chelsea Flower Show,
London in 2006 with Her Majesty Queen
Elizabeth II receiving the first bouquet.
Proceeds of the rose sales (in Great
Britain) go to the Royal Theatrical Fund,
a London-based charity founded by
Charles Dickens in 1839, to assist actors
and artists in need.
Mary Pickford - The Muse of the Movies, the CVC Arts Foundation's feature film documentary, won a Satellite Award by the International Press Academy in 2009, a Best Film Award in the 2014 Universal Film Festival, and a first-round Emmy nomination in 2018.
Proceeds from the sale of the
Caroline Victoria Rose and the Mary
Pickford documentary film support CVCAF's art awards and educational outreach
