Troika Contemporary Crafts is a gallery in Floyd, Virginia. Silvie, along with fellow artists Gibby Waitzkin and Susan Icove have created one of the finest crafts galleries in Southwest Virginia.


Gibby, Susan, and Silvie are full time artists, with long careers in their fields. Troika represents their own work, and has also invited over 40 other regional artists to be a part of the gallery.  The addition of these works from a variety of media areas has furthered their mission of highlighting the artist and craftsmen as a vital part of the gallery and the community as a whole. Troika Gallery cultivates community in a variety of ways such as sponsoring music events (Hotel Floyd) and curating shows for other artists and groups such as the Floyd Artisan Trail and 16 Hands.
