Valle del Sur Art Guild (VDS) is California's South Silicon Valley premier association of visual artists active in southern Santa Clara County, including South San Jose, Morgan Hill, San Martin and Gilroy.
We started back in 1974 with a handful of artists when the Silicon Valley was in its infancy. At that time the area was still primarily a farming community. Soon technology companies began sprouting among the orchards and row crops and the area soon became known as the tech center of the U.S.
VDS has also evolved through the years and the art produced by its members is a reflection of their artistic spirit and their response to the environment and the changing times.
