Support for Artists and Arts Education, best define The Jacksonville Center's (The Jax) role in the Floyd community. This year marks The Jax’s twentieth year of service.  Not only has The Jax grown and developed, so also has Floyd.  The strong statement made by a grassroots group of artists and creatives 20 years ago, when they chose to save an old dairy barn while supporting the arts, laid the groundwork for great things to happen in Floyd and the NRV today.  There is no doubt today the long-term benefit our art center has had on our community. 

We need your help to continue this important work...

* Workshops at the Jax such as Blacksmithing, Pottery, and Basket Weaving offer area residents life-long learning opportunities
* Afternoon Art Classes for school age children help develop fine motor and creative problem solving skills
* Open Studio offers no/low cost access to studio space, peer networking, and resources on a weekly schedule for artists and learners to develop their skills
* Concerts offer attendees’ the chance to see world-class performers up close. With limited access to live classical and jazz music in Floyd, this is a significant benefit to our region
* Gallery Events that showcase and highlight regional artists
* The Jax Gift Shop gives artisans an opportunity to present their works to a buying public
* Area artists teach workshops and classes that provide additional revenue sources
* Access to specialty studio space and equipment for low cost
*  Arts Incubator is a large part of the Jax identity and mission. Space and resources are available for artists and arts businesses to start their entrepreneurial lives at The Jax
* Advocating and expanding resources on behalf of artists and artistic endeavors
 
All of these activities add up to long-term benefits for Floyd and the region by:
* Catalyzing arts businesses and entrepreneurs in Floyd
* Encouraging young people to value the arts and their pursuit
* Developing additional sources of revenue for the town and county citizens
* Offering arts activities and education for visitors to Floyd
