Rockwall Art League has been promoting fine art in our community for two decades. Founded in 1999, RAL serves local artists and Rockwall residents by arranging opportunities for community art displays, hosting artist demos, promoting workshops, funding scholarships, and staffing the ArtReach program. Each year RAL awards the Tom Collins Scholarship to a graduating high school senior pursuing an art degree in college. For more information on this scholarship and instructions on how to apply, visit the RAL website. In addition, RAL members have been engaged in working with mentally, emotionally, or physically challenged adults through ArtReach since its inception in 2012. Art as therapy is a proven avenue for developing creative expression and promoting healing. A selection of artwork from the ArtReach program will be on display at the Fine Art Show.

The show attracts artists from across North Texas. For more information on how to enter, visit the RAL website or the Rockwall Art League Facebook page for a show prospectus. Entry deadline is midnight September 18, 2020.
