The Richardson Civic Art Society began in 1966 as the only art group in Richardson and every year the city has given a purchase award for the best of show painting.
These “best of show” paintings have been displayed at the Richardson Library until now, but the Library is undergoing a major renovation, therefore, the city has returned several of the paintings ( 25 of them) to RCAS.
RCAS will be holding an “Online Auction” in early October to make these paintings available to the public.
You may view the paintings being auctioned by capturing the QR code below (coming soon) and bid on the paintings .
