about our


In 2009, the Backdoor Gallery was started by artist Carolyn Bookout in a small, back-room area on Plank Road to showcase the work of local peers and University of Mary Washington art students.  Since then, the little space has expanded and moved it’s location to downtown Fredericksburg.  The Backdoor Gallery is a welcoming gift shop with a varied and expanding inventory of locally made, handmade and a few select manufactured items. In our continuing effort to support the Fredericksburg community of artists and artisans in their pursuit of creativity, the gallery premiers a new art exhibit as part of each months First Friday Celebration.
