The GFRAA offers art classes & workshops with dedicated teachers in a variety of media. Student shows are held annually to celebrate the artistic endeavors of those participating in our classes. Members have several exhibition opportunities in a variety of venues.
Exhibitions during the year, include both juried and non-juried. We offer our gallery space to area artists who are interested in our facility for a nominal fee.
The GFRAA participates and partners in city wide events to enrich the “art scene” of the Fall River area to involve audiences of all ages and backgrounds in art and educational programs.
On the pages of the GFRAA website www.greaterfallriverartassoc.org you will find information about our instructors, classes, exhibits, the WPA permanent collection, the Minna Kenler collection, upcoming events, directions and membership. Individual Membership is only $25.00/yr.
The GFRAA invites and welcomes new members with the message that you need only to have a love of art to join the association. We encourage both Artists and Art lovers to experience the GFRAA.
The Greater Fall River Art Assocation was officially founded in 1956 by people interested in bringing to our community an awareness and understanding of the visual arts. The organizing members met over 60 years ago, drew up by-laws and signed the Charter at the building across from the YMCA on Pine Street in Fall River, MA. The first national show was held in 1957 and first regional show in 1965.
