The Petersburg Area Art League (PAAL) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, located in the Old Towne Petersburg Area. Our mission is to “empower the community through the visual arts,” via our three Gallery Spaces and Art Education Center. We offer workshops and classes and participate in Petersburg’s “Friday for the Arts” with monthly exhibition openings every second Friday.
PAAL is in the middle of a renaissance. Thanks in part to a grant from The Cameron Foundation, PAAL’s building at 7 E. Old St. was renovated and expanded to include an Education Center in 2010.
Thanks also to the City of Petersburg, which generously donated to PAAL the lot adjoining their building, the organization is currently working to develop an open air sculpture garden space for the community to enjoy.
Meanwhile, PAAL has also been busy growing its programming. PAAL is also increasing the number and diversity of classes for adults and youth alike, while continuing to provide monthly exhibits that offer the community high-caliber visual art as well as periodic special events designed to celebrate the visual arts.
