American Society of Railway Artists

The American Society of Railway Artists was formed on April 8, 2013, to encourage and facilitate, through art, the depiction of railroading past and present, its impact and practices. During its three-month launch a total of 52 artists and five Friends joined the Society, earning Founding Member status and, in some cases, making an additional donation to support the start-up effort. Members already include some of the North America's most accomplished practitioners. Their clients include railroads large and small, suppliers to the railroad industry, and individuals who commission works of personal significance or who purchase works depicting a favorite location, railroad or activity. Other members are just starting to emerge as noted railroad artists. The subjects of their works range from the launch of steam railroading in 1829 to the Civil War, the "Golden Age" (the 1890s-1920s), the transition era (from steam to diesel motive power), the colorful modern age, even speculations about the railroad industry's future. At its heart, the Society presents an opportunity for those who love art and railroading to come together and share in the creation, distribution and appreciation of works of imagination that capture North America's unique railway heritage in its entirety.
