History of JRAL: Fifty-One years of Art, 1964-2015
The James River Art League is one of the oldest art groups 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; early meetings were held in a small white house on the grounds of Westover Hills School. The membership grew and soon the League included artists from both sides of the James River. Today, JRAL remains anchored in Greater Richmond, although we have members from throughout Central Virginia.
Please visit the Anniversary News and Anniversary News Archive pages to enjoy some highlights of our year-long celebration during 2014.
