Please donate, volunteer or sponsor this site.

This website and Facebook page were created a year ago to support and promote the area’s fine arts.  They are now a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, receiving accolades from the arts organizations and more than 2000 hits weekly from an appreciative audience. These are unusual and valuable resources for a community our size. The continued existence is dependent on donations and volunteer help.  Grants and advertising from the organizations supported only cover a portion of the hard costs and none of the work effort involved.  Your donations are critical, as is finding a volunteer who is passionate about the arts and able to contribute […]
