Arts Council of Riderwood

Arts Council Logo

Our mission is to present exhibits of fine art created by the residents and staff of Riderwood for the enjoyment of the Riderwood Community. The Arts Council is a Riderwood Administrative Advisory group.  We maintain galleries in Lakeside Commons, Montgomery Station, and Village Square.

Submitted artwork is juried by art professionals drawn from outside the Riderwood community. All forms of visual art are welcome, and residents and staff are encouraged to submit their work.  The exhibits rotate to all three galleries throughout the year.

Additional activities include receptions, Art Talks, Art Walks, and educational exhibits placed at various locations around campus.

The contact for the Arts Council is Winnie Coggins via email at

Come to the party at Montgomery Station Terrace Level and meet the people behind these exhibits: artists, Riderwood staff who support us, workers, and construction project managers.  It took a team to get this done!

Artists:  it is time to submit work for Exhibit 13. Jurying will be June 2 and 3. For details, pick up an application at any front desk.  The new show will be installed in the Encore Gallery on June 29.

Adventures in Creativity exhibits are rotating through the campus as well. Watch for them in the hallway near the Medical Center in VSQ, at LSC terrace level near Encore, and TNC Calvert Landing second floor elevator foyer. These displays celebrate residents who ventured into new creative efforts since retiring, as well as residents who have facilitated creativity on campus.
