Artists In The Library Schedule

We are constantly reminded of how many talented people live in Raymond. Why not give them a place to show the community what they can do? Raymond Arts Alliance and Raymond Village Library have teamed up to showcase local talent! Every 2 months a new artist will have their work on display at Raymond Village Library at 3 Meadow Road.


Here's the line-up of amazing artists!!

March and April 2020:
Robert Grimm, Wood Carver

May and June 2020:
Christina Keilt, Sculptor

July and August 2020:
Sandra Crowell, Painter

If you would like to exhibit your work in the Raymond Village Library, send inquiries and three sample photos of your work to: RaymondArtsAlliance@gmail.com.

Raymond Arts Alliance seeks to:
  • Present a variety of exhibitions by local artists in the visual and literary arts.
  • Help local artists, including organizations, professionals, and amateurs to increase their public exposure. Works of art may be offered for sale (sales are handled through the artist, not through the library). Having artwork for sale is not a requirement.
  • Provide fun, education, and creativity in public spaces through artists' exhibits. The Community is given the opportunity to learn more about local talent and artists will widen their audience and source of inspiration.
Requests to exhibit at the Library are taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
