Our Events

We love being able to invite the Richmond community into our world through a variety of different events. From fundraising to exhibitions, we are steadily expanding our community events.

Join us for a spectacular evening at a private club in Richmond, Virginia to celebrate the healing power of art. Our art exhibition and silent auction feature works for sale by professional artists and program participants, as well as AFJ staff and volunteers.

Let’s Paint the Lilies!
Jun 27, 2020 – Jun 27, 2020
9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Art for the Journey is raising funds for art kits to be delivered to many adults and children for whom we serve art programs designed to promote well-being. During the weeks where we are unable to be together face to face, these kits will provide retreat, opportunity for creative expression and hopefully well-being in the most socially isolated people of our community. We invite community artists to join the plein-air painting experience at a beautiful daylily farm in Chesterfield County to help support this initiative. We are excited to have the opportunity to be socially distant and paint in a lovely setting, and raise funds to help others all at the same time!
