about our


The Backdoor Gallery strives to support the Fredericksburg community of artists and artisans, especially younger and up and coming artists, in their pursuit of creativity, whether it be through production of their art or artwork exhibition.  In 2009, the Backdoor Gallery was started by artist Carolyn Bookout in a small, back-room area to showcase the work of local peers and University of Mary Washington art students.  Since then, the little space has expanded into a seven room gallery, happily hosting a wide range of work; the gallery exhibits everything from traditional oil paintings to wild and contemplative contemporary installations.
