About Us

The Southeastern Minnesota Visual Artists (SEMVA) incorporated in 1991 as a supportive group for regional artists to network, better their craft, and market their art. SEMVA displays art at various locations in Rochester and events throughout the year. Many of our artists display at additional locations.  Our artists create paintings, photography, pottery, glass, jewelry, woodworking, sculpture, folk art, wearable art, collage, printmaking, drawing and more!

Our main Art Gallery, previously located on the Peace Plaza 16 First Street SW Rochester, is being relocated to a new unannounced location and is currently closed.  We hope to find a new home early in 2016.

You can see art by SEMVA artists.  A mini-gallery is located at The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at 150 S Broadway, Rochester, MN 55904.  You can find it on walls just east of the main desk in the lobby.

You can also see art by SEMVA artists by looking at their page on this website and linking to their artist website or contacting them directly.
