Art Café/Gift Shop

The Rumriver Art Café and Gift Shop is a great place to hang out. We have lots of books for lending and free WiFi.

All are welcome – whether you are waiting for someone who is in a class or just want to stop in! Browse the local artists’ art for sale or grab a snack. We have soft drinks, water, and Keurig coffee, hot chocolate and hot cider. We also have pre-packaged snacks such as candy and chips for purchase. All profits support the art center and its programming.

The Gift Shop features all local artist work. Choose from handcrafted jewelry, cards, original watercolors, acrylic painting, ceramic bowls and other original works of art. CLICK HERE to see a sampling of what is for sale in our gift shop.
