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.
