Inspiring arts in the community and the community in the arts.
The gallery offers the work of 60+ local artists for sale, many of whom have won State, regional, national and international awards and recognition for their work. Artists
rent exhibit space and rotate as volunteer sales personnel. The gallery handles all art sales, collects a 25%
commission and remits sales tax. Except
for children's art and displays on loan, all
art is for sale. RAL Members not exhibiting
in the co-op also have a chance to enter monthly
gallery exhibits, including the annual Holiday Shop. The gallery
building also provides a classroom for adult and children's workshops; the
exhibit room for group shows, receptions and the Holiday Shop; space to display
children's art; space for meetings, lectures and forums; and office space for
gallery administration as well as for RAL's broader activities.
Our workshop program, populated largely by retired citizens, offer opportunities for enjoyable, creative experiences and a chance for further development. We offer 20 to 30 workshops each year (beginner to advanced) in media ranging from watercolors, pastels, acrylics, oils and photography to jewelry, basketry, pottery, stained glass, mosaics and furniture making. They are taught by qualified artists, mostly local, with nationally known artists imported for Master Classes two or three times a year. We also offer at least one evening workshop for those who cannot attend day sessions.
We support and supplement our school art programs by granting classrooms funds for art supplies and equipment, offering winter Saturday workshops and summer Art Camps, sponsoring student tours of major art museums, co-sponsoring an annual student art festival, mounting displays of children's art in our gallery and granting scholarships to local college-bound art students.
