We are excited to announce our Artists of the Month for October & November, 2022: The Tuckahoe Artist Association.
The Tuckahoe Artists Association was founded and held its first meeting on Tuesday, April 20, 1971. Originally, membership was drawn from the Tuckahoe Woman’s Club located in the west end of Richmond, Virginia. Currently the organization has approximately 60 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 aspiring new artists.
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 Tuesdays of September, October, January and February at the Tuckahoe Presbyterian Church, 7000 Park Avenue at 9:30 a.m. Guest artists make presentations regarding their work and special techniques or give demonstrations, lessons or critiques of members’ works. Several exhibits of members’ works are scheduled throughout the year at a variety of venues in the Richmond area. Once a year we organize a Judged Exhibit where members’ works may be critiqued and awarded ribbons by a local professional artist/judge. A spring trip to art museums of interest is sponsored as well. An annual meeting and luncheon is held in May. Officers are elected to a two-year term. Committee chairs are appointed for a two-year term.
This year the Tuckahoe Artists Association will hit a milestone. The organization celebrated 50 years of artistic creativity, activity, sharing, and service!
