For over 65 years, Glynn Visual Arts (GVA) has been your community arts center.  This is important to know because in any vibrant community, the art center is the always the HEART of the community.  That has never been more true than with Glynn Visual Arts.

GVA provides St. Simons Island and the broader Golden Isles community with a center for creative expression, a source of art education, and a showcase for art and artists both local and nationally celebrated. Annually we offer over a dozen exhibitions, three (3) major art festivals, a variety of classes for adults and children including kid’s summer camps, and a host of other opportunities for the community to learn about and benefit from art.

Going even deeper, GVA is an important resource for reaching into the greater Golden Isles community to help children who need help the most. Through our collaboration with organizations such as Boys & Girls Clubs, and Safe Harbor, which provides social services for at-risk youth, other support initiatives including Second Harvest Food Bank, Glynn County Public Schools, and programs for stoke victims thought Brain REconnectwhich provides art rehabilitation programs for the critically brain injured, GVA’s contributions to the community are clear. And there is much more to tell… more than we can share in this short letter.

GVA is a 501c3 non-profit association supported solely by memberships, sponsorships, grants and our continuing programming. Enclosed is more detailed information on how you can become a “Sponsor with HEART!” Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions and thank you from the bottom of our HEARTs!
