The Gallery provides hands-on art experiences, and offers a rotating selection of art classes suitable for all interests, ages and skills levels.

Color the LOVE Letters Each love letter features our community’s heart; color in each letter to put love in the art!

LOVE Letters in Suffolk On Saturday, November 23, 2019, the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts unveiled a life-sized LOVE artwork entitled ‘SUFFOLK LOVES THE ARTS.’ Created as part of a state and local partnership to promote travel and tourism, the artwork is an extension of the iconic “Virginia is for Lovers” brand, which in 2019 is celebrating 50 years since its inception. Respecting the Suffolk Center’s rich history as Suffolk High School, this unique collaboration was created with Suffolk‘s four area high schools (King’s Fork High School, Lakeland High School, Nansemond River High School, and Nansemond-Suffolk Academy) to inspire a very special ”Suffolk Loves The Arts” LOVEworks. Students submitted designs for approval then, over four weeks, worked with their school’s Art Department and classmates to create and complete their vision. Each LOVE Letter stands six feet tall and is over three feet wide! The new “Suffolk Loves The Arts” LOVEwork is one of more than 190 giant LOVE letters in towns and cities across the Commonwealth. A full list of LOVEworks can be found at

Color the Cemetery Statue Cedar Hill Cemetery is full of beauty . . . if only you look around and see!

Angel statue in Cedar Hill Cemetery Cedar Hill Cemetery inspires pleasant walks which may lead to deeper study of lifestyles, families, and history. The beautiful symbols carved into a headstone signified something about the person buried there. For instance, this statue has an angel, symbolizing rebirth or resurrection, spirituality, an agent of God, and guardian of the dead. The clasped hands may also symbolize marriage, a close bond, unity, or affection even after death. Only the relative who ordered the gravestone for the deceased knew exactly what those symbols signified; today, we can only review what is written about the symbols, look at the life span of the individual, and then try to interpret these lovely motifs.
