River Arts holds 10 themed, open, juried exhibitions per year—with some of Maine’s most prominent art community members as jurors.  Over 1000 different Maine artists have exhibited in these shows.  The gallery program creates opportunity for artists to have their work selected, participate in the gallery process and sell their work.  Over 7,000 people visited the gallery and participated in events and workshops last year.

The mission of River Arts is to nurture and encourage participation in the arts throughout Maine by providing exhibition, studio and performance spaces, classes and workshops, for people of all ages and abilities and support a wide range of activities in artistic disciplines by partnering with other arts and performance organizations to produce programs.
