Mission Statement

Hera Educational Foundation promotes a professional artistic presence that enhances the community (Southern Rhode Island) through education, collaboration and involvement. Hera Gallery encourages artists and their audiences to explore contemporary cultural, social and aesthetic issues.

Our vision is to erase all barriers to artists, broaden public interest in artistic expression, and enhance our community's exposure to local, regional and nationally recognized artists. We strive to fulfill our mission and meet community needs by offering exhibits and programs designed to engage targeted populations and interests that might not otherwise be served in southern Rhode Island. We are committed to exhibiting the work of established and emerging artists and to encouraging ethnic and cultural diversity in both audience and program development. In addition to exhibitions dedicated to showing the works of Hera artist members, about half of Hera's exhibitions are curated, invitational, or juried shows.
