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 (RDA).
During your visit, you will experience artists at work in spacious, inviting and light filled studios that are open to the public every Friday through Sunday from 11 am till 6 pm. 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. An adjacent Artisan Market features fine hand made craft from Virginia artisans.
Plan to experience a wonderful selection of tapas and traditional Spanish cuisine at El Quijote. They are open for lunch and dinner Thursday through Sunday.
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 barn doors.
