What People Are Saying

“We love the Jamestown Art Center. It’s such a part of our lives, part of what anchors and fulfills us in so many ways, that I can’t imagine a time when it wasn’t there!” – Justin Morris, South County Resident

“The performance was astounding, outstanding, inspiring, engaging, and a multitude of wonderful adjectives!!!! Everyone was so blessed to be there to hear it.” – Polly Hutcheson, Heifetz on Tour audience member

“JAC draws the community together and combines all generations under the roof of learning, entertainment, involvement, expressions and connection. It defines and nurtures our community on what is already a special island full of interesting, artistic, vibrant folks.” – Jemma Craig

“Driving by JAC one morning, I was literally flagged down by Kate and Vivi who were enthusiastically promoting some of the great fall programming. They convinced me to sign up for Cafe Clay, which, as a non-artist, I did mostly to support my friends and the JAC. Little did I know how much I would LOVE this class, and how surprised I would be at what I could create!”
