Support Central Park NC and STARworks

You are a part of the creative process

Grants, fundraising events and gallery sales only cover a portion of the funds needed for daily operations at Central Park NC and STARworks. Your support is a vital part of the creative process.

Your generosity:

  • Provides outstanding artistic educational programs and business ventures to regions that can often feel like a cultural desert.
  • Increases the diversity of artistic experiences available locally by bringing nationally and internationally known artists for demonstrations, classes, lectures and to make new works of art.
  • Gives young aspiring artists the ability to participate in an after school program that gives local high school students the opportunity to learn from working artists, and expand on team-building skills, critical thinking exercises and communication skills.
  • Supports innovative programs like the new STARworks Design Residency that gives designers and artists the opportunity to work together to develop high quality products for the home.  These programs will create jobs and new creative businesses 
  • Brings cultural diversity and economic development to small communities.
 

Courtney Web 2"I am currently showing many of the conceptual pieces I made during my (STARworks) residency at at solo show. My work is stronger due to the amount of time I was given at STARworks to cultivate my ideas, refine my techniques and complete many ideas that have been in my sketchbook. I have also been accepted into four additional galleries since my time at STARworks. Although I already had a production line, three months of refining and promoting that work was essential in propelling my business further." - Courtney Dodd, STARworks Glass resident artist 2015.
