The Public Art Centre is a not-for-profit charitable organization with a mission to promote the appreciation for and support the practice of the visual arts in St. Thomas and Elgin County; with our doors closed and our programs cancelled we are already seeing the effects. If you are in a position to do so, you can help to support STEPAC the following ways, every bit helps!
The doors to our building may be closed, but please enjoy our online exhibitions and new artists biographies, online publications, and resources, sign up for the newletter, and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and subscribe on YouTube.
In 2019, the Public Art Centre celebrated its' 50th Anniversary, our successes have been put on hold for awhile. Our Redtail Cocktail Party and Silent Auction has been postponed and we will be working with Redtail to bring you the safest way for us to get together. Thank you to our sponsors for their ongoing support!
Volunteers - An Important Resource
Volunteers are the most important resource St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre has. The ability of people to work willingly together for the betterment of their community and themselves is a valuable resource.
The image of the volunteer has changed over time. Now volunteers come from all walks of life. Our volunteers range from students participating in free public programming, retired teachers (greeters for special events and reception), educators (researching and archiving) and artists (sharing their individual artistic techniques in workshops and classes).
Ideally, volunteers find the donation of their time and energy a meaningful experience for themselves as well as for the organization. A true win/win situation.
