The James River is Richmond’s defining natural resource. All during the year the Friends of the James River Park and James River Advisory Council (JRAC) work to conserve, preserve, and promote the river with clean-ups, holiday boating parades and stewardship awareness. Art Works is only two blocks from the James. We have asked artists to capture images of the river for this exhibit.
This month, artists submitted work of any subject matter and medium. In addition to the usual prizes, there was a special award and prize for the best James River rendering.
