Being a writer and poet, I was pleased with Pewaukee Area Arts Council's enthusiastic incorporation of the literary arts when I joined the group a few years ago. I am one of the co-editors of the new project, One Vision: A Fusion of Artists and Poets, which has been strongly supported by PAAC. The organization is always looking for new expressions of artistic talent, whether it be music, drama, poetry or the visual arts. They are proactive in sponsoring events for the public to enjoy.
For many years I have wanted a chance to be a part of an organization where I felt I could add something and use my talents. I was surprized to find that the poets and writers and teachers all had something to give that would enrich my own life and intrests and they were intrested in what I have to offer. I am so happy to be able to use my skills for the good of my comunity. Thanks PAAC. Orel Rooney
The Pewaukee Area Arts Council is a shining example of how a local, creative community can feel empowered when individuals share energy and inspiration. PAAC sponsors artistic events and projects such as Banner Up!, The Antique Boat Show & Waterfront Art Fair (on Pewaukee Lake), as well as the One Vision project for artists and poets – just to name a few. PAAC provides the opportunity for local artists and performers to be guest speakers at meetings, regular scholarships are awarded to young, aspiring art students, and PAAC members create meaningful connections with other artists, writers, musicians and dancers. Creating opportunities for the arts to thrive and flourish is at the forefront of the PAAC vision. It has been so rewarding this past year to learn more about this organization and to contribute. ~Cristina M. R. Norcross (www.FirkinFiction.com)
