Welcome to the Rochester Art Club

The Rochester Art Club (RAC)was founded in 1877 and is one of the oldest continuously active art groups in the United States. RAC has a studio at the Fedder Building, 1237 E Main St, in Studio 415, Rochester NY. Members participate in workshops, exhibitions, and special members’ events that are scheduled year-round.

Members throughout the years have included people of all backgrounds with the common interest in art. Many notable artists and patrons have been part of the Rochester Art Club, and members’ works can be found in private collections and public institutions, locally and nationally.
