The Petersburg Area Art League showcases the works of local artists through exhibitions that change on the second Friday of each month to coincide with the ''Friday For The Arts!'' event in Old Towne Petersburg. The local artists create works in oils, watercolors, acrylics, pastels, jewelry, sculpture and mixed media. For over 70 years resident artists have conducted art lessons on-site for local students. Original works and prints are available for sale in the art shop.
