About the Gallery and School
In November of 2004, we broke ground on a 25,000 square foot addition to our building, allowing us to make room for the Jack Richeson School of Art and Gallery. Our family has a collection of over two hundred paintings that are on display as part of a permanent, not-for-sale, collection. Then, one third of the gallery is reserved for well-known contemporary painters to exhibit their work. The last and most important third is for new and unknown painters.
Throughout the year, Jack Richeson hosts various art competitions called the Richeson75 Competitions. Artists from all over the world submit their pieces for entry and 75 are chosen to be on exhibit in our gallery as well as appear in a hardcover book for that competition. More information on our contests can be found here.
In the middle of the building is our class room. We are proud to utilize local teachers to teach every variety of art. Once a month we bring in a nationally known painter for a special workshop. We open the Art School for local painters to come in and paint, chat and talk about their work. We also offer the space to be used for meetings and business receptions.
We are here to serve and support the fine art community. Come visit us today!
