Art for the Journey is excited to announce the 8th annual "Art of Healing" Art Gala supporting our mission to transform lives through art and community.

Please join Art for the Journey for the 8th annual Art of Healing Art Exhibition and Gala. The event will celebrate 10 years of Art for the Journey services around the Richmond region and across the Commonwealth. More than 60 regional artists showcase exquisite art for sale (more than 250 art works!), and generously donate 50% of the net proceeds to support the mission of Art for the Journey.  This fundraising event is a spectacular night out with music, art, food and wine, and brings our community together to support Art for the Journey's programs and to transform lives through art and community engagement. Focusing on underserved individuals, AFJ provides programs for children, adults, veterans and seniors.  We believe art heals, connects, inspires, educates, and provides joy, well-being and dignity.  Join us on September 21st and be a part of the journey!


Doug Burford will be here to sign his new book, "Untold Stories about Real Virginians."  It has local heroes like Mark and Buddy who saved kids through love and art.
Books are $12, with all proceeds going to "Art for the Journey"
Click on "Untold Stories." You won't be disappointed!
