Janice now serves as the Vice President on the board of this state-wide nonprofit arts organization which began in 1975.

 The Union of Maine Visual Artists (UMVA) represents artists statewide in all fields of endeavor and welcomes all those who support contemporary artists in Maine. The UMVA is dedicated to upholding the dignity of artists seeking to earn their living, while creating positive social change through the arts. By collaborating with other cultural and political organizations, we raise awareness for significant issues while promoting an inclusive arts community. Through our publications and programs we provide educational opportunities, and promote an inclusive arts community. We are grassroots and we are active.


The Arts & Cultural Alliance of Freeport (ACAF) is working to raise the visibility of the artistic and cultural activities our area has to offer, support the work of artists and cultural organizations, and to work with the whole community to implement the Freeport Cultural Plan. Check often to find ways to enjoy, participate in and support local arts and cultural activity.


The Boca Grande Art Center "BGAC" was founded in 1986 orginally called Boca Grande Art Alliance by a small group of talented artists living in Boca Grande, Florida, who were in search of a venue to show their art works to residents and visitors.  The Fust Library in town hosted several early exhibitions. We have become much more than an alliance of local artists and have become the center for visual arts here on the island.  Today we have grown as a 501-c3 non-profit operation with a very supportive and active membership.

Over the years, our program has added art exhibits, workshops, classes, educational lectures, special events and scholarships.  These all celebrate the local culture and promote the visual arts for the public and contribute to the cultural life of our community.
