GPMA November 2021 eNews


This is month number eleven for the year 2021. We have had an interesting and mostly good year at the museum. We have been open full time almost all year and have enjoyed having visitors. The exhibits have been varied and wonderful. This current exhibit is one of the most unusual. Our board president, Penelope DiGennaro, said of the exhibit, “it’s peaceful, otherworldly, meditative, and inspiring.”

We hope to see you here soon. We will be open for First Friday until 8pm.

This is also the time of year end giving. Further down in this eNewsletter are some ideas of how you can help us sustain our viability and continue presenting great programs and exhibitions. We are very appreciative of your support. Thank you.
Enjoy! Hyla Executive Director

Current Exhibition



This traveling exhibition consists of sculptures of animals in motion. The sculptures are created using plastic objects found here and there by Sayaka Ganz. On opening day we had over 50 visitors. People are really excited because this exhibit is totally different from anything the museum has ever had. Come and see!

Gallery One News

Exciting news for Gallery One. First of all, Gallery One has had great sales this year. The artists have been very generous with their time, helping to staff the gallery. We wanted to feature them on the website. We are creating a directory of the artists in the gallery. Now you can see who has art in the gallery and also what kind of art each person creates. We hope this will create an even bigger buzz around this great place to purchase one of a kind art. It is still in progress. Last month there were 37 artists listed. This month there are 48!

November and December Gallery One features holiday treasures.

Something to think about

Help keep the museum free for all! The museum does not receive government funding (other than grants from the Josephine County Cultural Coalition and the Oregon Cultural Trust via JCCC). Keeping the doors open depends on grants, donations, memberships, sponsorships, and rent from the street level businesses (Shoefly and Gallery One). You can make a one time donations and you can also make monthly donations. It’s easy – and we appreciate you very much! One additional side benefit – the foundations that offer grants are very pleased to see community involvement. Your donations show your support!
