James River Art League is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of more than 110 member artists from throughout Central Virginia. Our goal is to encourage the creation and appreciation of the visual arts. We provide our member artists with motivation, association, and continuing education through programs that feature qualified artists and art professionals, and we provide opportunities for members to exhibit artwork in venues throughout the Richmond area.
Our juried member artists work in a wide range of art media, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, graphite, pen and ink, collage, mixed media and more. Information regarding membership and meetings, as well as a members’ art gallery, may be found on our website at www.jamesriverartleague.com.
JRAL is one of the oldest art organizations in Richmond and was organized in 1964 by members of a painting class taught by Helen Hull Bailey. Through her persuasion, an art league was formed south of the James River. Noted Richmond artist Chuck Larivey was a charter member of JRAL, and over time the League grew through the addition of many artists from the region. Today, JRAL remains anchored in the Greater Richmond area but includes members from throughout Central Virginia.
