Once upon a time, long, long ago, a group of local artists began discussing the possibility of an artist co-op in Marietta. It was in the year 1998. A store was found at 175 Front St. and 20 artists opened the door to Riverside Artists Gallery in June bringing paintings, pottery, stained glass, watercolor, paper and more to the community. Twenty years later, local artists are still making handcrafted fine art and nurturing a love of art through community events, art classes, art shows, art camp for kids and the art gallery.
August 3, First Friday, join Riverside Artists Gallery from 5:00 to 9:00 as we celebrate our 20th anniversary. The art show, “Once Upon a Time”, features Virginia Killian, a founding member, sharing her latest paintings and Nikki Szabo, our newest member, showing her jewelry. Come experience the art, eat cake and enjoy meeting the artists, new and former members.
