Brooklyn Arts Association of Rhode Island


Our is mission is to bring art, in all its forms, to the community and bring the community, in all its diversity, to the arts in Rhode Island.

The Brooklyn Arts Association of Rhode Island is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring and fostering an appreciation for the richness and diversity of art and supporting artistic expression by providing opportunities for Artists to share their creativity with Patrons and the Rhode Island community though exhibitions and art shows, both within the gallery and the surrounding community.

We believe diversity of experience brings diversity in artistic expression. So, our gallery represents a compelling and eclectic collection of quality works from Artists from near and far, differing cultures, views, and mediums.

We believe art should be accessible and plentiful. Therefore, we support our participating Artists through art shows where Artist can not only show their work, but sale their art for prices that are affordable to the general public.

Finally, we believe that art is sustainable. The Brooklyn Arts Association sponsors educational events to expose young people to art and bring them into the process of producing art.
