Our Mission Inspire, educate, innovate and preserve

Inspire inspirejpegOur comprehensive approach provides artists and art communities with the inspiration to promote the power of inspired art created by local artists. The Art Preservation Initiative, through the Art Preservation Institute, provides exposure in commercially viable settings, where artists and art organizations can thrive and prosper without suffering locational disadvantages. Our unique method of rotating events, exhibits and educational programs help to ensure that artists can maximize their public and market exposure.

Educate educatejpegOur portfolio of educational programs include traditional painting workshops, professional development classes, and after-hours programs at the adult, college and high school levels.

Our innovative programs provide artists with relevant international venues  and broad audiences that provide critical avenues of artistic exposure.

Preserve haywainjpegKeeping alive the traditional metodologies of  fine art is essential to preserving the rich cultural heritage of art communities around the world. We offer financial assistance to museums and other organizations engaged in the physical restoration of older artwork. We also offer instructional programs that keep alive the almost-forgotten techniques of the past that are, for the most part, no longer emphasized in contemporary art instruction.
