This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Mary Katherine Russell Smith, Floyds Knobs, Indiana.  She is the granddaughter of the artist:

James L. Russell was born in New Albany, Indiana October 10. 1872 of Irish
ancestry and died on May 12, 1937.  Russell's early expression in art was as a stone sculptor and cutter.  His work still stands at the entrances of the Carnegie Center of Art and History in New Albany.  In 1906, Russell opened the Art Shop in New Albany, and this became a gathering place for artists of the area.  He then founded the Wonderland Way Art Club at his studio and invited all artists to meet and discuss each others art and styles.  Russell was a teacher and had over 300 artist members in the Club.

Russell developed his own impressionist style of oil and pastel painting that became known as A Sense of Place style or Ohio Valley style.

Russell exhibited in the Hoosier Salon, New Albany High School Gallery, Floyd County Library Shows, The Speed Museum, Brown County Art Guild and Wonderland Way exhibits.

His works can be found at the Speed Art Museum, Carnegie Center, Brown County Art Guild, Floyds County Library, Chicago Art Institute, Indianapolis Art Museum and can be found in many noted collections nationally.

Russell painted with William Forsythe, Joseph Krementz, Sid Crosier, Carl Brenner, Grover Page Sr and Grover Page Jr at King's Art Camp in Frankfort, Kentucky and John Bauscher, Harvey Joiner and Paul Plaschke at the Louisville School of Art.  In his lifetime Mr. Russell also taught many aspiring artists at his studio during any free time he might have had.

There was a retrospective show of Russell's work in January of 2000 at the
Carnegie Center in New Albany.  Collectors from all over the Midwest loaned their pieces for the exhibit where over 16,000 visitors attended it in during the two month show.
