Arts on Main (AoM) is a 10-year old non-profit, vibrant, growing arts consortium whose mission is to
bring the arts in all its forms to our community. About 25-33% of our income is Earned Income through
art classes and gallery sales of art on consignment. The remaining income is raised as Contributed Income
through fundraising and two major event fundraisers each year: Fall Gala and RiverJam (outdoor music
concert). AoM’s budget has grown to about $350,000 in the past four years, again, supported by
individuals, grants, foundations, education programs and rentals.

Arts on Main has an active and engaged 15-person Board of Directors and two part-time staff: a gallery
manager and a programs and marketing specialist. Visit to learn more about our
mission and our programs, as well as our downloadable Annual Report.


AoM is approaching an exciting new chapter as we emerge from the pandemic. Our Development
Committee has maintained fundraising activities and has met fundraising goals, while our Strategic
Initiatives Committee is just beginning a campaign targeted to large-scale donors in order to fulfill a 5-
year plan of paying for building improvements, paying off the mortgage, rebuilding the Reserve Fund and
developing new programs.

The incoming Executive Director will bring an entrepreneurial approach to the business of running a
nonprofit arts center, balancing needs of internal and external stakeholders, creating challenging and
responsive public programs, and navigating a competitive funding landscape. They will understand the
unique value we bring to the community and bring new vision to our potential. The incoming Executive
Director will be an effective spokesperson for AoM, conveying enthusiasm for art and arts education in all
its forms.

The next leader will inherit an organization with a stable immediate financial position, preserved
throughout the pandemic by a combination of PPP funding received in 2020 and successful fundraising.
To secure AoM’s long-term financial foundation, they will be an agile and eager fundraiser with an eye
toward growing our base of supporters, art collectors, volunteers and visitors.
