As the year draws to a close, Bainbridge Arts & Crafts is making ready for a momentous celebration—our 70th anniversary! And after all these years, BAC remains the only nonprofit art gallery in Kitsap County that supports professional artists’ livelihoods through year-round exhibitions and sales, while also providing completely free art education and outreach to schools, seniors, and the healthcare community. We can’t bring all this arty goodness to Kitsap County without people like you.
Your support makes art WORK for. . .
K-12 student artists, who get a chance to exhibit art and develop their talent. Each year we host two student shows and award three college scholarships to deserving high school seniors.
Local art teachers, who get help obtaining needed resources. Last year we distributed $3,300 in grants to fill the gap in their supply and program budgets. We’d like to give them more!
Seniors in retirement centers, who get access to free art education at their residences. Art After 60 serves 45 seniors per month at four centers, creating transformative opportunities for residents to socialize, share stories, and become artists.
People in hospitals and treatment centers, who experience the healing power of art. Our Art Lending and Art in the Lobby programs take artwork and free art activities into healthcare settings, helping to ease stress and promote well-being.
Your ongoing support makes this important work possible, and your donations are fully tax-deductible. As you consider your end-of-year charitable giving, please consider helping Bainbridge Arts & Crafts continue to make art WORK for Kitsap County!
