This April, Art Presence Art Center celebrates its 10th Anniversary as a Fine Art Gallery in Jacksonville. This is a time to reflect on where we have been and what we anticipate for our next ten years. Our initial Mission Statement spoke to our relationship with our community in Jacksonville. Our new Statement is more global, recognizing our impact on the Rogue Valley and beyond, with an emphasis on fine art, crafts, education, and authors. We are committed to the very best of all of these components. It seems impossible that we have survived as an art organization, but our patrons continue to remind us of our importance with their generous support.
We are eager to provide regular classes—taught by our professional artists, proficient in their fields—Life Drawing with professional models and useful, fun crafts for all ages. Of course, we’re open to suggestions from patrons about more that we can offer.
Art Presence Art Center can only get better. We think of ourselves as adolescents moving into adulthood with more wisdom and more tools at our disposal to succeed. Please continue to be with us on this journey.
