The Petersburg Area Art League (PAAL) Building has a Main Gallery, Members Gallery and Upstairs Education Gallery. It has 12 Foot ceilings, a small kitchenette and two bathrooms. These spaces are suited for up to 50 guests each for the Main and Upstairs gallery and 30 guests for the Members Gallery. 

PAAL is handicap accessible. We have an elevator to access each floor of our building. We offer our engaging spaces as a venue for meetings, parties, weddings and other events. The Main Gallery, Members Gallery and Upstairs gallery offer a unique space in Historic Downtown Petersburg. Our rental availability is determined by exhibition restrictions, configurations and installation schedules.

Renters should be aware of the nature of the spaces they are using, and activities should be appropriate for such a setting. PAAL’s primary concerns are the people in the building, and the appropriate care and safeguarding of its programs, exhibitions and ongoing classes. Thus, PAAL reserves the right to refuse facility rental due to concerns for the safety of the building, its holdings and/or conflicts with the goals and purposes of the organization. Events must not compete with or detract from PAAL’s ongoing public activities. The facility is rented “as is” in regards to furnishings, artwork, exhibitions and all other PAAL material and property. Art objects, furniture, or any other PAAL materials may not be moved for an event without prior approval.

When available, PAAL encourages individuals, groups and organizations to use its facilities for functions, meetings and events in order to facilitate public participation in the art center and to advance the interests of PAAL through increased public support.
