To cultivate, promote and engage in the arts


 Thank you for your past support of our Choral Celebration, Literary Contest, and Artists Exhibition. Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic, the majority of RFAS projects have been paused for spring 2021.  We look forward to presenting these projects again in Spring 2022.  

As for the North Carolina Artists Exhibition, we are pleased to announce our 2021 RFAS North Carolina Artists Exhibition: A Virtual Retrospective – New Work by 2018-2020 Juried Artists. Keep an eye out for more information forthcoming.  New information and details about the Choral Celebration and Literary Contest will be posted on our web site early fall 2021.

During this unprecedented year we at the Raleigh Fine Arts Society continue to focus on our mission “to cultivate, promote and engage in the arts” and our vision of “a flourishing arts community.” As we state in our core values, we believe the arts have a unique ability to educate, to heal, to bring people together and to spark meaningful reflection and discourse. We believe the arts unite people from different cultures and perspectives. These beliefs are why we have been working to advance the arts in our community for 55 years and why we will continue to advance together, during these times.

Celebrating Over 50 Years of Promoting the Arts in NC

The role today of The Raleigh Fine Arts Society remains as it was in 1965: To cultivate, promote and engage in the arts.. That means identifying, supporting and recognizing creative people and helping assure their work is seen, heard and appreciated.

This organization has established and nurtured the essential links among those who support these pursuits, those who enjoy them and those whose hands, hearts and minds create them.

Since the 1960s, The Raleigh Fine Arts Society has been actively involved in a variety of projects in support of the arts. In addition, members have access to special exhibitions, gatherings and tours. The Raleigh Fine Arts Society has historically made many significant contributions to the arts in the Wake County community.

About Us

The Raleigh Fine Arts Society had its beginning in 1964 when a small number of volunteers staged an exhibition of local art at the Olivia Raney Library in Raleigh, North Carolina. The following year the Raleigh Fine Arts Society, Inc. was formed.
