Place Description:

The gallery is an attractive multi-use space, for receptions, business meetings and other personal events. However, the greatest attraction is the exhibition of artwork. The space is reserved by visual artists on a monthly basis, with opening of the current show near the beginning of each month. With special walls for gallery display, adjustable gallery lighting, skylights and original wood floors, the space provides a unique venue for viewing and purchasing original works of art.

Performing Arts Theatre

What once was a 300-seat school auditorium is now being refurbished. Having recently been used as a storage area and maintenance work area, the old auditorium is getting a new lease on life. NCRD and the Riverbend Players are pursuing the renovation and transformation of this auditorium to a new Performing Arts Theatre. Although cleanup has commenced, the renovation will be a step-by-step process as funding becomes available.

Upon completion, the new theatre will be home to the Riverbend Players Theatre Group, and a venue for a variety of other performing arts and special events. Even without all the new elements in place, the Riverbend Players has begun performing in the refurbished theatre and many other special events have been held as well.

If you are interested in reserving one of these venues to present an event, contact the Administration Office.
