Art Presence Art Center became the little jewel of a professional art gallery we are today with help from donors large and small. Year in and year out, a small nonprofit like ours relies on the generosity of donors. Basic expenses, performing needed renovations, promoting art exhibitions, implementing new programs for the public…it all adds up. From change placed in our donation jar at the gallery to large donations enabling the successful completion of a renovation project or sponsoring a show, every little bit helps. Therefore, we are grateful for every donation, and no amount is too small. Please donate today.

In 2022, Art Presence celebrates ten years of bringing a steady offering of fine art to historic Jacksonville. In addition, we’ve made many changes and improvements to the gallery. With support from grants and donations, we have completed major renovations including new walls, flooring, panels, and lighting. Further, we renovated our front desk and upstairs classroom. Most recently, we installed studio spaces upstairs to create The Loft, which artists can rent for a reasonable amount.
All of these improvements are the result of the hard work and vision of our founder and director, Anne Brooke. Anne has worked tirelessly to create this premier fine art gallery which we now often take for granted. And, not unexpectedly, after all this time she has announced her desire to step back from these responsibilities. She plans to devote more time to developing Art Presence’s educational program. But who will we find to replace her as Director?
Donate to help us add our first paid staff position.
After much discussion and consideration, the board has decided that our only realistic option is to replace Anne’s extensive volunteer work with a part-time paid director.
Which costs a lot of money!
We are pursuing various grant opportunities; however, grants are not a guaranteed source to provide the ongoing funds necessary for this salary.
Therefore, we ask you to step up and help with a donation to help bridge the gap to make the hiring of this Executive Director possible.
Every donation, no matter the size, will help us reach this goal.
We thank you for your ongoing interest and support which gives Art a Presence in historic Jacksonville.
Please consider us when you make your year-end charitable gifts.
