History of the Art
1971 Gloria Mathews had the first Rockbrook
Village art fair with 15 local artists. Known as
the “Mayor of Rockbrook Village” Gloria was able
to grow this event into one of the best art fairs
At the time of her death in 1991 the Rockbrook
Village art fair was an established annual event,
hosting over 150 artists from across the country.
Each year we honor her memory. It was her love of
art and her vision to bring in the best artists
possible that has made the Rockbrook Village art
fair what it is today.
