The Grapevine Art Project, Inc. (GAP) has recently received its 501-C nonprofit organization status. The mission of GAP is to enlist a broad cross section of the community to support the visual arts through programs and events at unique local venues, with the objective of developing a recognized Grapevine regional art destination.
The Grapevine Art Project began in the late 1990’s as a vague concept for a Grapevine based art organization to support the arts first voiced by a longtime Grapevine resident, realtor and sometime painter, Ms. Barbara Nunn. Slowly, others were attracted to her concept which led to several attempts by Grapevine painter, James A. Humphrey, and other artists and individuals to formalize an organization as early as 2004. These original organizational attempts met with little sucess until they attracted the attention of a long-time downtown business owner, Pat Fairchild, of the Pueblo Connection Art Gallery. Since Pat sold his business and retired, much of his time has been devoted to serving as President of GAP and as its prime advocate. GAP’s first actual operational year was 2009.
Individual membership in GAP is $35; senior or student status $25. The group sponsors an annual membership art show. For more information, see the website: http://www.grapevineartproject.com/ Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
