Promoting Visual Arts through Education, Exhibition, and Marketing!
Art education is the first element of our mission statement. We offer year-round classes & workshops (some offsite) for all ages by qualified instructors-many with scholarships! Teachers introduce new & different ideas broadening the creative experience for accomplished & beginner artists alike.
Gallery presentations are a big part of our mission to promote the best in visual art. Exhibitions also connect to our education mission as a platform to share art that’s created today. The Gallery displays change every 4-6 weeks. Our guests are delighted to find a gallery presenting such quality work by regional and Virginia artists. They demonstrate new means of expression in creativity and solid technique in technique in a wide range of mediums and styles. Other annual exhibits highlight our local artists (& student artists). Vote for your favorite piece for a “People’s Choice Award”! A curator-led tour can (generally) be arranged and scheduled in advance for visiting groups ages 6 and up.
Serving and partnering with artists in the Shop, we strive to encourage their growth & development. This is done by providing a marketplace for masterfully skilled juried work to be displayed & sold.
