In This Together

We are raising funds for the Stockton Art League on #GivingTuesdayNow and through the month of May. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $100. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.

Letter from the Director:

The Stockton Art League's Goodwin Gallery is currently closed due to the COVID-19 crisis which has caused us to cancel or postpone all artist receptions, artist demonstrations, workshops, youth classes, and public visiting hours.

As a non-essential business, we have made adjustments in our services to reach the community through online services. We are enjoying the creative ways to engage from our homes and studios, however this does not cover the costs to operates the Goodwin Gallery and we are only able to reach a fraction of the public that would walk through the doors on a weekly basis. Our other passive income streams have also come to a halt. In addition, we sustained building damages during the April rainstorm. At a time when we are putting our resources towards reaching the community via online or pickup, we are also working on salvaging artwork that was damaged and beginning the reconstruction process with the help of our helpful insurance agents.

Elsie May Goodwin, whom the Goodwin Gallery is named after, believed in a public art space for artists, students, and the community to come together. At a time when we cannot gather, it is even more apparent that we, as a community, need these spaces. We are not alone in this struggle. In fact, many of our collaborative nonprofit partners are in the same situation and need the community’s help. If you are able, please help in any way you can.

For a community challenge, I ask you to support the Stockton Art League with $10 and find two additional small organizations to support with $10. Together we can exponentially impact our community. If 100 friends can support three nonprofit organizations with $30 total per person, that supports each organization with $1000. If you want to create a bigger impact, make this donation a monthly pledge for the next 6 months. Every little bit helps.
