Over the past 30 years, gallery owner Kraig Foote and team have worked to provide gallery space for local student and emerging Arizona artists. The gallery works directly with high school and college art students as well as hundreds of other artists throughout Arizona to support their passion for art. They also work with the Autism Academy and One Step Beyond, displaying and selling work from disabled individuals. Every sale from either of these organizations, or from artists high school and below, receive 100% of the proceeds from their sales to further their creative process and cover art related expenses. Our youngest artist is 12 and our oldest is in their 90s!
As an extension of the Scottsdale gallery, the Art One Foundation is a separate nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting underprivileged student artists. It was founded to provide financial aid, art supplies, tuition assistance, and other art-related expenses to up-and-coming high school and college artists. With strong community support, the foundation has positively impacted the lives of hundreds, if not thousands, of student artists.
