Junior League Gallery

Interior view of the Junior League GalleryLocated in the Bama Theatre, the Junior League Gallery opened in 1983 through fundraising efforts by members of the Junior League of Tuscaloosa. Originally the balcony lobby, the space was converted to a gallery through the installation of appropriate lighting and the alteration of the walls, making them suitable for hanging art work. In addition to Arts Council sponsored competitions/exhibits, the space is also available to local artists for individual or group exhibits commission free. Artists will be required to have a portfolio and original samples of their work for presentation to the staff before an exhibit is scheduled.  The gallery is the home of the West Alabama Juried Show, Double Exposure Statewide Photography Exhibit and the Visual Art Achievement Awards.

 

 

Current Exhibit

"Nothing Adventured, Nothing Learned" Photography by Lindsay Madison

Lindsay MadisonExhibit Dates: June 16-August 31, 2017

Reception: June 25 from 2-4 p.m.

Background: The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa will host an exhibit of work by photographer Lindsay Madison at the Bama Theatre’s Junior League Gallery June 16-Aug. 31, 2017. Titled "Nothing Adventured, Nothing Learned," the display will feature her nature themed images. A reception honoring the artist will take place on June 25 from 2-4 p.m. at the gallery.

Madison has been a resident of Northport/Tuscaloosa since the age of four and is a graduate of Tuscaloosa County High School and The University of Alabama with a degree in Education. She has passion for teaching Environmental Science and spent three years at the McDowell Environmental Center in that capacity. While traveling to Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico, she photographed the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, the Bandera Volcano Crater, Havasu Falls, Montezuma Castle and many more significant landscapes in the region. Also represented in her work are the Smoky Mountains, Dauphin Island and surrounding Alabama wetlands, the Sipsey Wilderness and Bankhead National Forest area.

Madison describes herself as a "Nature Photographer" as she prefers to photograph things that occur naturally, instead of man-made structures. Old buildings that have been reclaimed by nature or structures that have historical significance to Alabama do occasionally appear in her work. Otherwise, she attempts to capture animals, plant life, landscapes, waterfalls, sunsets, beaches and insects in their natural state without manipulation.

Gallery hours are weekdays 9 a.m.-noon and 1-4 p.m. and also during Bama Theatre events. Enter the gallery through The Arts Council offices, located on the second floor of the PARA Building, if visiting during office hours.
