Val Sivilli is an artist. Val Sivilli is a renaissance woman. She is a painter, printmaker, writer, musician and activist who strives to connect the power of ‘artist’ to serve a ‘community’. Her artwork is fueled by a passion for that untamed feral nature that lives just beneath the surface of the human animal. Her work uses narrative elements and the power of color to express deep truths about humanity’s relationship to the planet, other living beings and ultimately, to each other.  

Originally, from Brooklyn, Long Island and then Brooklyn again, Val now lives in Hunterdon County, NJ. She did her graduate work at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers, her undergrad at SUNY Purchase and Alfred University.  She is currently an Adjunct Professor of Fine Art at both Bucks and Raritan Valley Community Colleges. Civilian Art has been her identity as a T-shirt designer since 1996.  In 2016, Val worked to create The Hunterdon Art Tour, a self-guided tour of artist studios throughout Hunterdon County, NJ. Quite often, she can be found playing her accordion somewhere.
