Get Involved

There is more than one way to be part of the ALRI community.  In addition to membership, consider volunteering your skills or making a donation to support our programs, events, or scholarship.

Join as a Member:  Anyone can join Art League Rhode Island as an Artist or Community Member at any time.

Volunteer: If you’d like to volunteer to help us support our artists and bring more art to the community, contact us at and tell us about your specific interest. Our various committees are always in need of extra hands and skills from anyone who is excited about art.  Our needs range from Gallery Docents (no experience necessary) to communications specialists.

Donate: Offering the powerful art exhibitions and programs you see here is a full-time endeavor made possible by an active volunteer membership and the financial generosity of ALRI patrons. Contact us to share ideas and to learn more about how ALRI embraces current approaches to curatorial programming, community building, art education, and community outreach. You can also use the link above to make a direct contribution. We’re grateful for your support!
