Art Speaks Gallery and Special Events Sponsorships

Every year, The Bay School hosts a variety of events and programs which brings our community together to enjoy fun-filled creative experiences. Proceeds from these activities, including sponsorships from our generous partners, enable us to provide and expand art-based experiences for artists, young and old, including individuals unable to come to us.

We invite you to support this vibrant community through sponsoring the Art Speaks Gallery. This year-long sponsorship of the gallery, which can begin at any time during the year, helps offset the associated costs of all exhibitions and events held at the gallery. For $250, you can become a sponsor of the 2024 Art Speaks Gallery events and exhibitions.

Gallery sponsorship benefits include:

  • Your name/logo listed on the sponsor poster in the gallery
  • Sponsor recognition in all gallery event and exhibition emails, in the Art Speaks program, and on the gallery page of our website.
  • Although you do not have to advertise to be a sponsor, those that do receive a 10% discount on all advertising.

You also can choose to be a Special Event sponsor of one or more events held at the gallery. Special Event Sponsorships underwrite the cost of these tasty excursions into the culinary world and introduce you to a select group of food and beverage aficionados and art lovers. Singular event sponsorships are $250; however, if you wish to sponsor more than one, subsequent sponsorships are $225 each.

Event sponsorship benefits include:

  • Sponsor recognition in the event press releases, social media postings, and on our website
  • Your logo/name on the event sponsor board in the gallery.  

In 2024, event sponsors may choose to sponsor one or all of the following:

  • Irish Culinary Experience (Mar 13)
  • Art Speaks Exhibition Reception (Apr 27)
  • Faerie Tea (May 5)
  • Wine Tasting (Jul 18)
  • Progressive Wine Dinner (Nov 13).

Please contact Pam Doss at, call 804.725.1278, or sign up online to become an Art Speaks Gallery sponsor.  If you are interested in sponsoring an event, please contact Pam to find out which events are still in need of sponsors.

Thank you to our Current 2024 Art Speaks Gallery Sponsors!
