Members Letter

The World looks and feels very different than what we are used to.  With that in mind we are sending this out to ask that you consider becoming a member of the Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts.  If you are already a member we would remind you that your membership is due for renewal on July 1st, 2020.

The Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts (BMFA) is a non-profit charitable arts organization supporting and celebrating our cultural community with awards, bursaries and juried show prizes.  We create educational opportunities for members of the community to display art and facilitate extensive youth arts programming.  We have created a private Facebook page for our members to connect with one another in a safe environment, with the intent of being supportive of one another.

 Our mission:

To inspire Excellence in Visual Arts through Educational and Creative Opportunities”

You may ask “why become a Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts Member”? There are so many charities to donate to.  We need your help in order for us to continue to serve this great community.

May 2020 marks 45 years that the BMFA have been supporting Art in the community.  We have done a lot for the community and we need your help in order for this to continue.  Members are the life-blood of the BMFA’s ongoing success and without them we would not be here today.

It has been proven that Art is an essential in taking care of your mind and spirit.  Artists make the world more beautiful.  We provide programs for our youth to learn about the arts, to express themselves and to gain confidence.


Our supporters ensure we can continue to bring great programs to our community. They are the key to the success of our ongoing education programs where we offer workshops for youths.  Our goal is to continue providing programs with the much needed donations from our patrons.

Please note that we are also looking for people who would like to volunteer for the BMFA.  We have a great need for volunteers for some of our programs.  The Juried Art Show, The Collingwood Arts and Music Festival and the Story Telling Festival.

We thank you for your support.
