“Backlit Watermelons“ by Gloria Callahan.

Founded in 1974 by J’net Kaulfers, the Bon Air Artists Association was created to showcase the work of emerging regional artists. On Saturday, April 18, the artist collective presents the exhibition “Artful Healing” at the University of Richmond’s Jepson Alumni Center. The fundraising event not only features a large selection of works by Richmond-area artists, but raises money for the World Pediatric Project, the local non-profit founded in 2001 to link worldwide pediatric surgical, diagnostic and preventative resources to heal critically ill children in developing countries. In an increasingly polarized world, buying art that helps people in need is a win-win most of us can agree upon. The exhibition is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. bonairartists.com.
