Grants Pass Museum of Art December 2021 eNews

Gasp – only 28 more days until 2022! I personally cannot believe this year is almost over. We are very grateful to be open! So many museums were shuttered and eventually closed for good. Thanks to support from all of you and foundations, we are alive and vibrant. We are ending the year as upbeat as ever. Our current exhibit has brought an unprecedented number of visitors. When the exhibit is finally over, I will send out the statistics. I think you’ll be amazed.

If you haven’t seen us in a while – come and visit. We would enjoy having you here.

Warm regards,
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 Black Friday we had 148 visitors. That is a record for daytime visits to the museum. People are really excited because this exhibit is totally different from anything the museum has ever had. Come and see! This exhibit will be open through December 18. This video is a conversation by Sayaka Gans about her work.

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 have created 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 think this will add an even bigger buzz around this great place to purchase one of a kind art. Last month there were 48 artists listed. This month there are 56!

November and December Gallery One features holiday treasures.

Artists in the news

This October, The Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce called to artists for paintings of their favorite building in Jacksonville. The winning painting, an aerial view of Jacksonville from the Cemetery entitled, “New City Hall,” was created by Desmond Serratore, a respected member of Art Presence. Serratore’s art will be included in the Chamber’s new release of postcards available in time for the holiday season. Postcards can be purchased at the Visitor Information Center located at 185 N. Oregon St. (next to the Post Office) Congratulations, Desmond! (Desmond is a museum member) Something to think about We never know what impact we can have on people – especially children. Offering cultural experiences of any kind can be life changing.

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!

What you are supporting: We provide professional opportunities for artists, We sustain free events and admission to the museum, We promote innovation and inclusiveness, We connect residents and visitors through shared conversation, and We contribute to the identity of Grants Pass. You can DONATE by clicking here Monthly donations are so amazing. They add up quickly. Just $10 a month means a donation to the museum of $120 for the year. That’s fabulous. Please consider this option. The payments are safely charged to your credit card. Be a “Monthly Sustainer” and click here!
