We are excited to have been nominated for Martha’s Vineyard Bank’s Community Impact Award. The nonprofit who gets the most votes is awarded $2,500. We have been very busy during this pandemic year in creating opportunities for artistic outlets and we are proud of what we have achieved. We love that our current students range in age from 5 to 99 years old. We are holding classes in person and remotely on Zoom. Our galleries are also in person and remote. We continue to have 36 shows per year with artists participating in even greater numbers this year. Our art talks and virtual receptions on Zoom are also popular.

If we are fortunate to receive the most votes, we would use the funds to support our in person kids art programs. These programs have been very appreciated by local families—particularly this year when so many children were on remote learning for part of their schooling.

We ask you to consider casting a vote for us. (One vote is allowed per email address). You will see the link to vote below.
