The Naples Art Association is comprised of a group of dedicated individuals who promote art and creativity for and among all of the members of our Naples community. It has been the most rewarding membership of mine over the 12 years I have called Naples my home. From Artscool to the Members' Gallery and countless other exhibitions at the Von Liebig Art Center, to the many festivals it runs and supports throughout the year, nothing has enriched my life more than my association and involvement with this organization.
The Naples Art Association's ARTScool provides my daughter with quality and fun arts training every summer, and the lineup of exhibits, festivals, and programs during the balance of the year is unmatched in Southwest Florida. Visit the Von Liebig Art Center and be surprised!
The Naples Art Association is a remarkable organization that offers enriching programs for all ages, facilitates the development and showcasing of local talents, and is an imbedded part of the Naples community thorough its envolvment in events; art fairs, lectures, and much more. In addition to having an impressive gallary that displays many different artists and themes throughout the year (great place to stop by anytime when downtown) the classes are excellent, run by professionals and talented artists, and the organizations efforts to make a difference in the community is heart felt. a GREAT nonprofit that deserves all our attention as community members!!
I have enjoyed the exhibitions and art fairs of the Naples Art Association for many years, but just recently have become more involved in its support and mission advancement.
I agreed to become a member of the Relationship Development Committee because I value the cultural contributions this organization makes to the community. The NAA offers a wide array of classes and learning opportunities to art enthusiasts of all ages.
The professionalism, dedication, and passion of the team at the NAA is evident the moment you walk through the front doors. It is a longstanding organization with a stellar reputation and an eye to the future, looking ahead and planning forward to ensure organizational strength and success.
I decided to assist NAA by joining the board several years ago. I admire their top notch educational programs first and foremost. Their sponsorship of outdoor art fairs (some informal, some juried) provide numerous opportunities for artists to show and sell their work--and attract thousands of visitors to downtown Naples every year. The exhibitions are always interesting and often outstanding. NAA occupies a unique position in Naples society: art educator and community resource, service provider for hundred of artists, and host of art exhibitions. Bravo!!
I've been active, mostly as a vendor to the Naples Art Association, but also as a juror for the Art in the Park program for many years. I teach photography and urge all budding artists to get involved with the Naples Art Association for great exposure. The NAA really goes out of its way to do whatever it can to help its members. I've watched as photography has become a more accepted art form, the NAA has kept up with the trend and offer more opportunities for photographers.
The NAA hosts wonderful exhibitions and receptions to get art lovers and investors to check out the work of local to international artists. They offer both art classes and business classes for those serious about a career as an artist.
The art fairs they put on are one of the highlights of the Naples community. It's a fabulous organization!
The Naples Art Association has been like a family to me, an incredibly hard working, results oriented, friendly, inspirational, and educational organization where everyone feels at home. The level of commitment and the team work creates a contagious energy, so attractive to the many many locals and visitors alike. I have been a volunteer there for a few years and cannot recommend an organization so unequivocally as the Naples Art Organization. It's the epicentre of culture in Southwest Florida and everyone should be so blessed to enjoy and contribute to its continued success. Heidi E. Keyes
My daughter attended to the summer program, it was fantastic !!! Since then we attended to a photography exhibition and some musical events.
Naples is very lucky to have this institution enriching the community and getting the kids involved.
Thank you to the Staff for all the hard work and all the donors that make it possible.
For 16 years I've been a volunteer & member of Naples Arts Assoc. Working in the Library has been a rewarding experience. Their summer program for students is just one of the many fine programs they offer to all Naples residents. Bravo NAA!
