Why does your donation to BAC matter?
Bainbridge Arts & Crafts remains the only nonprofit art gallery in Kitsap County that supports working artists’ livelihoods through year-round exhibitions and sales, while also providing completely free art education and outreach to schools, seniors, and the healthcare community.
Sales of artwork aren’t enough to complete the picture – we need you.
When you make a gift to BAC, you help ensure that:
Talented, hardworking artists receive ongoing opportunities to show and sell their work. Our special exhibitions and front-of-house gallery showcase artwork by 250 Northwest artists.
K-12 student artists get a chance to exhibit art and develop their talent. Each year we host two student shows and award three college scholarships to talented high school seniors.
Local art teachers get help obtaining needed supplies. This year we distributed $3,260 in grants to fill the gap in art teachers’ supply and program budgets. We’d like to give them more!
Seniors in retirement centers get access to free art education at their residences. Last year, Art After 60 served 30 seniors per month at three centers, creating transformative opportunities for residents to socialize, share stories, and become artists.
People in hospitals and treatment centers get access to free art education at their residences. Art Rental and Art in the Lobby take artwork and free activities into healthcare settings, helping to ease stress and promote well-being in patients, families, and even staff.
You see BAC’s brushstrokes everywhere. Now, help us complete the picture.
