Founded in May 2011, River District Arts is an eclectic group of more than a dozen artists working in a wide variety of media and styles including oil, watercolor, photography, ceramic and collage. They are the heart and soul of River District Arts.  
During your visit, you will experience artists at work in spacious, inviting and light filled studios that are open to the public. You will have an opportunity to talk with them about their latest creations and browse our two exhibition galleries. The River Gallery and The Confluent Gallery feature regularly changing shows by local and regional artists. To stay abreast of current activities join our email list or like us on Facebook. An adjacent Artisan Market features fine hand made craft from Virginia artisans.  
Located in Sperryville's River District, RDA is housed in a beautifully restored post and beam apple packing facility from the 1930s era, with touches of sophisticated modern interior architecture combined with exposed beams, rustic wood floors and sliding stable doors.

Art Enriches Life. That is the ultimate mission of River District Arts.

Open Studios, Gallery and Artisan Market Hours: Friday through Sunday 11 am to 6 pm.


Public welcomed. Handicap Accessible.
