As part of our yearly sponsorship drive, we are writing to you concerning an opportunity to sponsor the Pontiac Artists ‘Association (PAA) for 2023.
The PAA acts as an umbrella organization for arts related events, exhibitions and art courses at the Stone School in Portage-du-Fort and at other locations in the Pontiac. We are a non-profit, volunteer run organization promoting art and contributing to the cultural life of our community. Sponsorship dollars are 100% dedicated to promotion of the association’s activities.
Last year was one of our best! We were able to nearly double our Membership, to a high of 138 and, with help from our Sponsors, were able to create and furnish a new Shop in the lower gallery at the Stone School. The Shop was a tremendous success, with sales of nearly $19,000, all of which went directly to our artists, as we did not charge a commission. Our Gallery series was also well attended, with our featured exhibition focused on conservation (Call of the Turtle) attracting some 27 artists, and the related family workshop proved to be one of the best attended However, the painting of the entry and hallway, required us to dip into our reserve.
This year, we are looking to our Sponsors to help us in creating more space and storage for our School program to introduce new and more varied courses as well as host a new iteration of our very popular ‘Residency’ program, which will allow us to attract participants from outside the Region and promote our businesses in the Pontiac at the same time.
