Junior League Gallery

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 artwork. 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.


Westwood Art Month at the Bama” will take place April 29-May 17, 2024 and will feature the fine arts programs of Westwood Elementary. The annual event will include an exhibit of the students’ visual art in the Bama Theatre’s Junior League Gallery and the 17th annual Musical Extravaganza in the theatre on April 30. The events are sponsored by The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa, Westwood’s adopt-a-school partner.

The Musical Extravaganza will take place on April 30th at 7 p.m. on stage at the Bama Theatre. The Westwood Singers will present “Night at the Movies.” Over 60 students in grades one through four will participate in this production, with Chris Babb conducting. Admission to the musical is $1 for adults and teens and $1 for children twelve and under who are not performing on stage. Tickets will be available at the box office.

Art work created by students in grades K-4 will be displayed at the Bama’s Junior League Gallery April 29-May 17. 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 3-4. Admission to the exhibit is free. 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.
