Remember those moments in your life where art inspired you, touched your emotions and produced in you a feeling of passion or power? It may have even brought out your own talent. If so, you know that art takes time. It is made up of an instant of inspiration, a second of emotion, a flash of passion, minute of power, hours of hard work and a lifetime of talent that needs nurturing and hard work that needs supporting. As a non-profit, member-supported arts organization, the Arts Council depends on generous sponsorship of individuals and corporations in our community. Your support of our programming ensures high quality and enjoyable experiences. We promote local visual, literary and performing artists in our community and give them the best exposure possible.
