“Behind the red door at 19 North Main Street, in Kilmarnock, is a place to be inspired by art in the community and the community in the arts.”
The RAL Art Center is incorporated as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization community resource that welcomes everyone to discover how art can enrich our lives and bring people together. It provides a place for residents and visitors to create and appreciate the visual arts and to buy quality artwork by regional artists. For 68 years the RAL has been the largest and most active visual arts presence on the Northern Neck. Run almost entirely by volunteers, it is they who organize monthly exhibits, community events, art education programs and a cooperative artist gallery… truly an impressive history of art in the community.
RAL is a proud affiliate of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and is partially supported by grants from Virginia Commission for the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts and River Counties Community Foundation.
The mission of the RAL Art Center is to organize, sponsor and foster the visual arts & crafts through exhibits, educational programs and cultural activities that reflect, enrich and inspire our broader community.
