JIM BUMGARDNER

James Bumgardner (1935–2015) was an expressionist/figurative painter, multimedia artist, and a Virginia Commonwealth University professor of art in the VCU School of the Arts. As an undergraduate student at Richmond Professional Institute (RPI), Bumgardner was encouraged by his mentor Jewett Campbell to study with the notable Art Students League of New York instructor Hans Hoffman (1880–1966), and Bumgardner received the last scholarship given by Hoffman, a German-born American abstract expressionist painter.

Using his scholarship, Bumgardner studied with Hoffman in Provincetown in 1957, during which time he became friends with gallery director Richard Bellamy and artist Jan Müller. In 1963 in Richmond Jim Bumgardner and Jon Bowie co-directed a series of multi-media events or “happenings”. The first was called “Synthesis” and was influenced by the productions of Allan Kaprow andthe ONCE Festival of New Music of Ann Arbor, Michigan. After “Synthesis” Bumgardner and Jon Bowie invited notable outside performance and visual artists who joined in a series of annual “Bang, Bang, Bang Arts Festival” happenings in Richmond
