Online Arts & Crafts Hub

Online Artist Listings
November 4 – December 31, 2021

The Arts & Crafts Hub is an online space for Bay Area artists and makers to share and/or sell their work during the holiday season. It is a retail space for holiday arts and crafts shopping, but it is more than that too! Local artists and makers share recent work, holiday specials, project links, posters for change, messages for peace, and more in this interactive catalog of Richmond Art Center’s creative community.

The Hub launches November 4! Interested artists should CLICK HERE to join.

Ceramics Sale

Our popular Ceramics Sale is back in-person this year with an opportunity to shop local and handmade for your holiday gifts! Stop by Richmond Art Center anytime during gallery hours from November 4 through to November 20 and purchase beautiful and usable ceramics. All items are made by our students, teachers and friends. The Ceramics Sale will be set up in our galleries and new pieces will be added weekly.
