River Arts provides exhibition space, workshops, classes, studio rental, other cultural programs and numerous, varied juried art exhibitions.  As well as our juried shows, we hold an annual exhibition to showcase our members’ works.  Our workshop space enables artists to rent studio space in a community setting.

We are greatly supported by dedicated volunteers and we always welcome new talent to our ranks!

Our volunteer board of directors is committed to transparent, innovative and responsible operation of the organization.
