Artists in Northeast Florida generously share their gifts throughout the year. Now is the time to repay them by giving their art pieces as Christmas gifts for your loved ones. Be generous. Buy something for yourself. Imagine what our world would be like without their celebrations of life through their crafts. Thanks to the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville’s (CCoGJ) we don’t have to concern ourselves. Many artists obtain tools to sustain their career because of CCoGJ’s efforts. This is the season to remember these artists and CCoGJ in your giving.
