Bringing Richmond Metropolitan Area Artists Together
In 1974, students in J'net Kaulfers' oil painting classes encouraged her to create an organized group to accommodate their growing talent and interest in art. The Bon Air Artists Association was formed. Today, it fulfills the wants of a group of avid artists throughout the Richmond Metropolitan Area by promoting cultural awareness, offering excellent programming and giving incoming artists the chance to meet, learn, exhibit and share with other artists. The Bon Air Artists Association is an active, friendly, and stimulating organization of and for artists of all levels and mediums. We invite you to check us out and join our passion for art!
