Returns in June!
Located 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.
Exhibit Dates: May 1-16, 2017
Background: “Westwood Art Month at the Bama” will take place May 1-16, 2017 and will feature the fine arts programs of Westwood Elementary. Hosted by The Arts Council, the annual event will include an exhibit of the students’ visual art in the Junior League Gallery and the 12th annual Musical Extravaganza in the theatre.
The Musical Extravaganza will take place on May 2 at 7 p.m. on stage at the Bama Theatre. The Westwood Singers will perform the musical “Broadway Beat,” and The Westwood Singers II will sing several musical selections including “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” “The Wabash Cannonball,” and “I’ve Gotta Crow.” Admission is $5 for adults and teens and $1 for children twelve and under who are not performing on stage. Over 100 students in grades one through five will participate in this production. The event is sponsored by The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa, Westwood's adopt-a-school partner.
Art work created by students in grades K-5 will be displayed at the Bama’s Junior League Gallery May 1-16. All work is original and consists of drawing and painting. Awards for Best of Show, first, second, third and honorable mention will be presented in grades K-2 and 3-5. Admission to the exhibit is free.
