For 50 years, the James River Park System has inspired countless hikers, climbers, paddlers, and lovers of nature. It has also inspired many of the region’s artists – especially FOJRP Board Member, author, and photographer Bill Draper. Many of the beautiful images that you see across our website and social media feeds are thanks to the magic of his lens. He’s also the author of “A Photographic Journey through the James River Park System.”
Bill’s work has, in turn, inspired others who have used his images to take pen to paper, and brush to canvas. Camera to Canvas will pair some of our region’s best artists with their favorite Bill Draper images to create original works for a charity auction benefitting our mission. You will have the opportunity to bid on individual items, or paired sets of artwork.
What a wonderful night of raising funds and celebrating the James River Park! Thanks to all who attended and/or bid on auction items. We appreciate your continued support.
