Sadly, the time has come for The RAS to close its doors.

Thank you to all who contributed, participated, or simply held a good thought in their heart for the work we were trying to accomplish.

I consider myself lucky to have been afforded such a unique experience. I imagined and created a versatile, non-profit art space for the community that I live in, and learned so much along the way. It has been a fantastic adventure, one whose fond memories I will forever carry with me, as I hope you will too!
