The French Art Colony

The French Art Colony, a regional multi-arts center, has served our area for more than 50 years! We offer art exhibitions, classes, community events, educational outreach and rentals of our historic facility for public and private events. We are also home to The Riverby Theatre Guild, featuring an annual schedule of community theatre, children’s theatre and more.

The mission of the French Art Colony is to enhance the quality of life for everyone through the arts, advocating for and supporting education and economic development throughout our tri-state communities and providing a welcome home, where the arts may flourish.
