The Artisans

Our Art Gallery has to move.  We are planning to combine The  Artisans Gallery, where the Artists sell their work,  and our non-profit Stepping Up For Arts (SUFA) into a new space.  

The purpose of Steeping Up for Arts or SUFA, a 501(c) organization is the:

*Provision of fine art scholarships to Brunswick County graduating seniors
*Provision of grant monies to Brunswick County public school art teachers to support art projects.
*Provision of fine art workshops to the community and teachers of the county.

Purpose of the funds requested:
The Go Fund Me monies to provide SUFA and The  Artisans Gallery with storage for our current equipment, moving expenses, necessary displays, rent, security deposits, and start up supplies.

How We Would Use the Space… 

We aim to reposition our organization by building a one of a kind collaborative relationship between Stepping Up For Arts and the Gallery.  We would accomplish this by offering… 

* On a periodic basis, a Wall of Honor showing the art work created by Brunswick County students who benefit from our school grants and scholarships. (Stepping Up For Arts) 

*Art demos provided by our artists in the various 3D and 2D disciplines. (Stepping Up For Arts) 

*Art workshops for those in the community including the Brunswick County teachers and their students. (space available) (Stepping Up For Arts) 

*Complimentary children’s face painting during holiday and high tourist seasons. (Stepping Up For Arts) 

*Plein Air events where our talented artists create and show their works on the sidewalks of Southport. (The Gallery / Stepping Up For Arts) 

*Raffles and other prize winning opportunities to raise funds for our non-profit organization. (Stepping Up For Arts) 

*A location for the Stepping Up for Arts organization office. (Stepping Up For Arts) 

*Complimentary wine and cheese Artist of the Month exhibits where guests can meet and chat with the artists. (The Gallery) 

*Fine art items for sale by professional, juried artists in a variety of disciplines. The Artists receive a percentage of the asking price for the work sold. (The Gallery) 

*Our holiday boutique, well known throughout the community, where the creative items are available for purchase. (The Gallery)
