Our mission is to promote understanding, appreciation, participation and general interest in the visual arts throughout the Tennessee Valley
Since its founding in 1957, Huntsville Art League has been a primary source of representation and support for Tennessee Valley artists. For many years the organization was dedicated to the formation of a permanent Museum of Art in Huntsville, and for that purpose assumed the name Huntsville Art league and Museum Association (HALMA).
During that time support for the new institution was formed, leading to the rapid development of the Huntsville Museum of Art, our acclaimed and successful sister institution.
Over the years, Huntsville Art League has assumed the role of a regional Visual Arts Center, serving the visual art interests of all citizens of the Tennessee Valley. Huntsville Art League strives to provide a congenial and stimulating environment for nurturing visual literacy and expression.
The gallery is packed with a wonderful display of all sorts of artwork. You will find pictures in oil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, and mixed media; photography, note cards, original jewelry, sculptures, glasswork, gourds, pottery, metalwork, hand-painted silk items, weavings, and the occasional wood piece. All these are created by our local Tennessee Valley artists.
In addition, Huntsville Art League provides educational programs and instruction for children and adults, sponsors workshops with prominent visiting artists, conducts demonstrations in various media, and hosts special exhibitions.. We feel we add significantly to the quality of life, in the greater Huntsville area.
Huntsville Art League receives no Federal, State, or local tax dollars, but operates solely on the support of its members, sales of its exhibiting artists, and the generosity of the local community.
