  About Us

Jefferson Arts, Inc was founded in 1997 by a group of local artists. Their objective was to bring art and art awareness to Monticello and surrounding areas. They leased an old school building in badly need of repair and in seven years of blood, sweat, and tears, it became the beautiful artist studio and art gallery of today.


We are a non-profit organization, surviving on memberships and studio rental from our artists in residence. We are constantly adding new artists to our fold of talented members. Our members' talents run the gamut, working in such mediums as oil; watercolor; sculpture; acrylic; pastels; drawing & sketching; cartooning; fantasy; book illustration; beading; glass bead making; woodcarving; woodturning; mixed media; china painting; basket making; weaving, crocheting, knitting boards, and photography. Our membership consists of artist members, both professional and amateur, as well as those who simply appreciate art. 

We feature one exhibit per month, with an opening reception on the 1st or 2nd Saturday of the month from
2pm to
4pm. We have two member exhibits per year: December and June. We have studio space and classroom space as well as a gallery. We feature workshops by well-known artists in all mediums and by our local members as well. Jefferson Arts Gallery also features a gift shop where we sell affordable works by our member artists.  

Our past shows have included the works of Jean Weiner; Lynn Priestly; Julie Boland; Sally Shovar; Ron
Yrabedra, Stephen Bennett, Penny L. Anderson, Dr. Maguerite Foxon, Keith McCulloch, 
Donalee Pond-Koenig, Troy Spencer, Renee Lynch, Debby Brienen, Melinda Copper, Peter Murdock,
 Ruth Dryden-Deshaies, Linda Van Beck, Ken Harper, Zaid Haynes, Andrew Greenwood, Strange Circus, Tadja Dragoo, Jo Shoupe and Eluster Richardson to name a few.
