The Visual Arts committee, composed of volunteers, works to provide an opportunity for all levels of artists and artisans, ranging from hobby or emerging artists to professionals to come together in the community to exhibit their work. By offering exhibitions that celebrate all facets of creativity, including craft, wearable art and more traditional art forms, we hope to inspire our community to push their creative boundaries. Exhibitions introduce artist and craft persons to the broader community that can encourage financial support through the purchasing of an art piece or functional craft piece as well as introducing the community to traditional crafts and various art forms that may or may not be in danger of dying out.

To support the efforts of providing exhibitions, in 2019 the RCAC installed an art hanging system in the Miners Hall Lily May Room. These exhibitions provide the opportunity for locals and tourists alike to interact with local art, but will also increase the opportunity for artists to exhibit their work and raise their profile in the community.  By supporting artists we are supporting the economy and vibrancy of Rossland.
