As 2020 slowly crawls to its conclusion, now is a great time to consider end of year tax-deductible charitable donations. If you find yourself in a position to donate before the end of the year, we would love to recommend one of the many nonprofit organizations that we are proud to call our clients and partners. All of whom are doing valuable work to improve our community through a number of programs and services.

The mission of Artaxis is to provide a peer-reviewed source of contemporary artwork in ceramics and sculpture. Utilized as a resource by instructors, students, gallerists, curators, the general public, and contemporary artists, Artaxis strives to promote and enrich the field, while functioning as a direct and unobtrusive conduit between viewer and artist.
