Vision: Aspirations for the Future

We aspire to be a hub that nurtures creative life by inspiring people of all ages to love the arts and to explore how arts can enrich their lives.

Mission: How We’ll Go About Pursuing our Vision

Our mission is to create a bustling environment reflecting the pulse of the community in a wide variety of creative and artistic forms that will broaden our appeal and open doors. This vision will be carried out within a focused portfolio of art forms, making NRAS the “go to” place for the arts. Our activities will be open to all artists, aspiring artists, learners and hobbyists, “art appreciators,” students, or anyone interested in opening up to creative activity.

 

Established in 1968, the North River Arts Society (NRAS) is a grass roots non-profit organization fostering participation and appreciation of the arts. The Society is governed by a Board of Directors and resides at the G.A.R. Hall, 157 Old Main Street in Marshfield Hills.

The NRAS offers classes for adults and children, a Festival of the Arts, Members Show, Childrens' Day, Holiday Arts Sale, workshops, scholarships, financial aid, newsletters, discounts for classes and supplies, musical and theatrical performances at the hall, a writers workshop, and exhibits at Ventress Library Gallery, Dolphin Gallery, G.A.R. Gallery and the artists cooperative Little Gallery.
