Visual Art

The Center for Rural Development is proud to showcase the talents of professional and aspiring artists in our visual arts gallery.

We also host artist receptions where the community can meet the artist whose work is on display at The Center.

The Center has hosted the work of both amateur and professional artists in the visual arts gallery and is constantly looking for ways to engage young students in the visual arts.
