What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

FemArt is committed to growing the awareness of women artists through exhibition opportunities, educational program and community outreach. Our largest obstacle we are trying to overcome at this time is location...location...and a gallery. We are looking to build or create a state of the arts facility that will offer an art gallery, three studios for women, a child care area for moms to work on their art nearby, an education center with a Smartboard for public art classes, an art therapy office, a gift shop, admin office and a small library. This place will offer us an opportunity to truly promote women artists and raise the value of women's art to correct the imparity women face with lower pay and lack of exhibit space. The importance of this space is to help women artists develop confidence in gallery presence, workshops that will keep women artists updated on the industry trends and latest art products. A gallery brings awareness of the community which is essential to growth.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Women of Color in the Art Speak

FemArt has launched a three-part series forum, "Women of Color in the Arts Speak," that explores seven women's personal journeys as they discuss dual bias in the art world today. Each discuss their personal value of themselves and their work, their educational challenges and triumphs, their access to art shows and public acknowledgement as well as answering public questions in the third series in an open public forum.

This program is being developed into a curriculum that will be delivered into classrooms, K-12 and certain college art programs in 2021. This is a true effort for FemArt to impact and enrich our cultural identity in our society through these vital women's visual voices as well as providing future social justice within classrooms so that their is more appreciation and value for women artists in our society.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The remedy to our lack of opportunities for our artists is to lease or gain a space in our community that will bring public awareness of the incredible women's art and how the value of these voices will lift and cultivate a better society.

We have already set aside a monthly fund of 50% of money in our bank account aside for future rent of a facility and must continue to grow our funding so that 50% increases.

Our main goal is to build a beautiful gallery that will also offer studio spaces for women along with a child care room and educational space. We want gallery hours and educational classes that will enhance community awareness and culturally benefit society.

Our strategy is building our board to be our advocates for directing our organization and develop a clear vision and goals for all of us to follow. We rely on volunteer committee members to actively get involved with our programs and community outreach. The passion to lift each other is very contagious in Jacksonville, Florida. We are planning fund raising activities and have greatly appreciated many small donations and grants by local business owners. Donation sites like this are essential to get our message out and build funds that will benefit not only women artists but our society by having diverse voices that truly relay our cultural identity through the arts.

Our capability is measurable by our seven board members who are experienced, educated and dedicated to making real changes in our society by promoting women artists and raising their value and income from their art. We are founded on Feminist values that began with the founders of this organization in 2017. The passion and support of the community is abundant and we believe that our organization's mission is solid and has already grown our organization leaps and bounds with a steady growth of members and community support.

So far we have had five art exhibits in varying locations all over Jacksonville; one women's talk by Deborah Reid, Esq. who talked about Women, Art, Law and Bias; a group of women artists who volunteered to do community outreach mural for a day care that provided affordable childcare for a working mom who returned to school for her art degree; monthly critique nights that provide a place to talk about their process and art work and build confidence in their presentations; and recently launched our early education program at the Goddard School in Orange Park, FL where we had an artist demonstrate pastel painting while the volunteer teacher talked about the importance of recognizing the value of women in the arts. The sooner we get a gallery in place the bigger our presence will be and as Georgia O'Keeffe said - "I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty."
