Tuckahoe Artists Association

The Tuckahoe Artists Association was founded and held its first meeting on Tuesday April 20th, 1971. Originally, membership was drawn from the Tuckahoe Woman's Club located in the west end of Richmond, Virginia. Currently the organization has about 55 members including active, associate and honorary members. Membership is drawn from diverse sources in the metropolitan area and consists of established professional artists as well as new ones.

The purpose of the organization is to stimulate interest in the fine arts. In order to achieve its purposes, the association has regular meetings on the third Tuesday of September, October, January and February at Tuckahoe Presbyterian Church, 7000 Park Avenue at 9:30 A.M. Guest artists make presentations regarding their work and special techniques or given demonstrations, lessons or critiques of member works. A spring trip to art museums of interest is sponsored as well. An annual luncheon/business meeting is held in May to elect officers for the coming year.

Approximately six to eight exhibits of members' works are scheduled annually at various venues in the Richmond area. In June, the annual judged exhibit is held in the James Center Lobby where works are judged and awarded ribbons by local Richmond professional artists or gallery owners.

Virginia Eye Institute welcomes other local artists who wish to exhibit their work. Please contact info@vaeye.com or 804-287-4200 for information.
