Gulf Breeze Arts, Inc. 

Gulf Breeze Arts, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit charity created by local artists in Gulf Breeze, FL in 1986.  The goal of the club is sharing the gift of art with our community as well as art education.   GBAI began running it's annual Gulf Breeze Celebrates the Arts Festival in 1994 with continuous support from the City of Gulf Breeze.  Every year GBAI donates the proceeds from this volunteer-run festival to K-12 school programs throughout Santa Rosa and Escambia Counties including UWF and PSC.  Our donations go directly to programs for art, band, drama and JROTC which are incredibly important to the development and growth of our youth. These funds help provide supplies, equipment and many educational opportunities not otherwise available. 

In the last 24 years we have been able to donate over $100,000 to these programs and continue to do so through our annual arts festival held in Gulf Breeze Proper. 

Gulf Breeze Arts, Inc. is made up of and run by over 40 members living in Santa Rosa and Escambia Counties.  We meet the first Tuesday of every month at the Gulf Breeze Community Center's Clay Ford room.  We have programs consisting of artist talks, workshops and demonstrators.  We invite members of the public to join us at our meetings and become members of a wonderful community group.
