La Galería @Rhode Island Latino Arts | An Artists Collective

La Galería del Pueblo is located in Central Falls. It is a casa de cultura, the cultural space of Rhode Island Latino Arts, and located inside a beautiful colonial house that was built in 1900.

La Galería is an artists collective (the Rhode Island Latino Artists Network — RILAN) that is built upon trust and mutual respect. We strive to encourage support within the group and offer opportunities for artists to educate and share the Latino arts experience to segments of the population that otherwise might not have access to it. This is a place where local Latino established artists can exhibit and sell their work, offer workshops with fellow artists, mentor emerging artists and host networking events. Like RILA, La Galería serves as a bridge between Latinos and non-Latinos.

We host intimate and informal events such as artists talks, arts demonstrations, poetry readings and community conversations (
pláticas) that focus on Latinidad | Latin-American cultures. We also offer workshops or classes such as dance (Bachata), Latin drumming, sketching, and oral history workshops. During warm weather we host artists potluck gatherings in an open-air setting, behind our space.

Our gallery space features rotating exhibitions of original artwork by members of our Latinx artists network, all who live and work in Rhode Island.

For the general public: There is a reasonable fee to participate in classes or workshops offered by members of our Artists Network. At this time, we are not open to student group visits to our space.

For Artists: You may become involved by exhibiting your work or selling your work on consignment. We do not pay or charge artists to show or install their work — we are a collective and therefore your participation in La Galería is strictly on a volunteer basis and we are happy to assist with curating your work.

La Galería @RILA is the home of Nuestras Raíces: Rhode Island Latino History collection and archives and also Teatro del Pueblo performance space.

La Galería @RILA receives support from these local and national sponsors.
