The Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley hopes to aid the growth and development of Southwest Virginia by expanding the arts and cultural opportunities for all area residents. We hope to offer more exhibit space, additional classroom facilities and a wide range of arts education classes for area members.
The members and board of the Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley believe that art is important to the life of a community and nourishes human development. Our purpose is to foster an enjoyment, appreciation and understanding of visual and performing arts by the residents of the New River Valley and to encourage and support its artist. We carry out this mission through an annual educational program of rotating exhibits of art from both within and without the area, classes for adults and children, lectures, performances, and the sale of related merchandise. We collect and maintain a permanent collection of the works of artists of the New River Valley and Asian decorative arts.
