The Brush and Palette Club is committed to enriching the quality of life in central North Carolina by promoting interest and education in visual arts.
The Sanford Brush & Palette Club (SBPC) was founded in 1964 by a small group of friends that enjoyed painting and helping each other develop their talent. Today’s club has a membership of nearly 100 artists who gather to support and celebrate the visual arts in our community.
The SBPC offers several venues for local artists to show their work and strives to increase artistic awareness and appreciation in the community. Each year, we honor an “Artist of the Year” for his or her contributions to the club, award scholarships and provide art materials and support to local schools and students. Our Annual Art Show is a long-standing and widely anticipated event.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose events, scholarships and outreach programs (like the Art Angels for Budding Artists) are made possible through individual and corporate donations, government grants, and commissions from the sale of artwork during the Annual Art Show.
This project is supported by a grant from the Lee County Arts Council through the Grassroots Arts Program of the North Carolina Arts Council, an agency funded by the State of North Carolina and the National Endowment for the Arts.
