Pride Community Center will once again be hosting month long art exhibitions of local artists along with a Wine and Cheese opening night premier.

Jane Medved will be our first featured artist.  Her show will premier on Saturday June 4th from 7-9 pm and will be on display June 4th – June 28th at the Pride Center

Jane Medved- began painting when she left New York and moved to Gainesville in order to learn a way to feel inner peace to support and enrich her life. In New York City, Jane served as Consultant to The Metropolitan Museum of Art while working from her clay studio near the Brooklyn Bridge. Her clay sculptures were exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, and Museum of Arts and Design. As Visiting Artist at Montana’s Yellowstone Art Museum, she held a one-woman show there. Every week, Jane and her husband Chris visit one of Florida’s endangered springs, providing stunning subject matter for paintings. World maps are another of Jane’s themes, inspired by travel abroad.   Jane donates a percentage of profits from selling paintings to humanitarian and environmental causes.

Transgender Students Under Attack in Marion County

Pride Community Center of North Central Florida Is deeply disappointed that the Marion County School Board voted 4 to 1 on April 26 to pass a resolution that prohibits transgender students from using bathrooms they identify with (and requires them to use bathrooms based on the gender listed on their birth certificates).  Click here to view the text of the “transgender resolution”. As passed, this policy imperils the safety of transgender and gender nonconforming students who are forced to use bathrooms that do not correspond to their gender identity.  This resolution stigmatizes these students and exposes them to potential bullying and harassment. If you would like to let the Marion County School Board members know that you oppose this dangerous resolution.  You can email the five Marion County School Board members at these addresses: Nancy.Stacy@marion.k12.fl.us, Carol.Ely@marion.k12.fl.us, Bobby.James@marion.k12.fl.us, Angelia.Boynton@marion.k12.fl.us, Kelly.King@marion.k12.fl.us
