Welcome to CVCAF Gallery


With our long-term partners,  including schools and other arts-related nonprofits, we support student artists through a wide spectrum of artistic forms including visual/digital art, music, dance, theatre, media/film and photography.  .

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.

Our aim is to cultivate an inclusive and nurturing community in which student artists can explore their distinctive voices, experiment with new ideas, take creative risks, and enjoy personal and artistic growth. Within this supportive environment, we strive to empower student artists to contribute meaningfully to the cultural narrative of their communities. Their diverse artistic expressions not only enrich their communities but also ensure that the arts continue to mirror, in evolving ways, the society they artistically interpret and reflect.


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,  and Paris (France).  

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 or elizabeth@cvcartsfoundation.org and we'll forward our "Guidelines for Accepting Art Donations." 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 location.  If you have questions about any of our artworks displayed online or in our gallery, we would love to hear from you. Please contact: elizabeth@cvcartsfoundation.org.

President and Co-Founder
Caroline Victoria Coldicutt Arts Foundation
CVCAF Gallery


At the heart of the Caroline Victoria Coldicutt Arts Foundation (CVCAF),formed in 2006, is the belief in the transformative power of art - a belief inspired by the memory of Caroline Victoria Coldicutt (1987 – 2004).

Caroline was 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. We are guided by the significance art held in her life and strive to instill the same passion and creative spirit in the student artists we serve.  



CVC Arts has donated over 150+ 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. For rose sales in the US,please contact Rogue Valley Roses, Medford, OR at: https://roguevalleyroses.com/rose/caroline-victoria/.

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.  To purchase a DVD: https://www.amazon.com/Mary-Pickford-Movies-Charles-Chaplin/dp/B007R0PWUO

Proceeds from the sale of the Caroline Victoria Rose and the Mary Pickford documentary film support CVCAF's art awards and educational outreach programs.
