Uforge Gallery: Since 2011, Uforge Gallery, a creative space and artist collaborative in Jamaica Plain, has welcomed thousands of visitors. They are drawn by art exhibits, cultural events, and a welcoming ambiance. Uforge has been true to its mission: to exhibit emerging and established artists and to cultivate an inclusive arts community through affordable workshops, events, and art exhibits. In order for us to continue to thrive, we need your support.
Our Accomplishments: To date, Uforge has participated yearly in JP Open Studios, we have shown over 1,000 visual artists, many from Jamaica Plain. In 2015, a JP Gazette poll named us “Best of Jamaica Plain” to seeing art. And in 2013, we were nominated for the “Best Gallery in Boston” award by the Phoenix. And we’ve had thousands of visitors in the last 4 years.
Uforge in the Community: Uforge is a committed community member that does more than hold monthly art shows. We host or facilitate local events such as readings, performances, and workshops. The yearly Holiday Shop, where local artists sell their art, draws hundreds of shoppers who support local business.
Our Development: Uforge is at a pivotal stage of development as a community arts resource. We want to expand our collaborative projects with other arts and non-profit organizations like the Loring-Greenough House and The Footlight Club. We seek to create the opportunity for more artists to use our space – we want to enable more musicians, filmmakers, and dancers to showcase their art with us.
Your Contribution: We hope you will make a much-needed contribution to Uforge Gallery. Our fundraising goal for 2015 is $5,000. Like many small volunteer organizations, our overhead costs, such as rent and utilities, have skyrocketed. Although we apply for grants, our work cannot continue without the support of generous people like you. Your tax-deductible gift will help in two ways: It will support the continued operation of Jamaica Plain’s only independent community gallery, and it will support our efforts to further our mission, and to provide a creative space operated by artists. Every donation will make a difference. We are grateful for any amount you can contribute.
Suggested giving levels are: Patron: $100 | Benefactor: $50 | Supporter: $35 | Friend: $25
