This art gallery starts its fourth year June 2021 in the historic Board of Aid to Land Ownership building at Historic Rugby.

“The Gallery At Rugby,” a venture by artist and longtime area resident Freeman Davenport, opens on June 3. It features works from area artists for sale, and on display in monthly themed shows.

Davenport has for years offered instruction to other artists through workshops and plein air events in Rugby. In 2017, she and other artists created a seasonal gallery in the Board of Aid where Davenport also maintains her own studio.
