My husband and I have a small traveling resident theatre company catering to seniors in retirement homes, senior centers and life care facilities. We would not exist without the advice and support of the Arts Council of Beaufort County. Jenny and JW Rhone have offered their knowledge and support every on every step of our journey. They have not only supported our small company, but have ccreated a wonderful space for artists to perform, paint, design and teach.
The positive energy of
ARTworks is contageous. I hope this lives on for many, many years in Beaufort

I am a professional award winning Low Country artist living & creating in this area for 21 yrs. In my experience this Arts Council of Beaufort County is the very best so far! The dedication and energy that JW ,Jenny, Lisa plus the many members & volunteers tirelessly bring to Beaufort County is a full range or art endeavors. As a working artist , I depend on the Art's News for information & events. It is times like this budget crunch that remind us to look at our priorities , culture defines a community. I believe this Art's Council is well deserving of the $5,000.
Support of the arts builds character & joy of living from the youth to the young at heart.

I am so thankful to the Arts Council of Beaufort County. They do not just speak to the arts community -- they create the community by offering opportunities to participate, appreciate and create. In 2006, I heard about the Big Swim mermaid project. What a fun way to reach the public art enthusiast. My sister Charlene Dohmann and I created Miss Beaufort, the mermaid who lives on Bellamy Curve. This opportunity has enriched our lives by bringing us into contact with the many individuals who have seen and admired her -- had their photos taken with her. It has also brought us into contact with other artists in the area. We were also able to participate in the Chalk on the Walk 2007 -- an exquisitely beautiful, sunny day in October, on which we created in a new medium, sold crafts, and mingled with many other citizens of the area -- all in a most enjoyable way. My participation with the Arts Council has also brought me to the point of selling my art jewelry creations, Neck Rocks, at The Gallery on Bay Street. These opportunities bring fulfillment on many levels, and I thank the Arts Council for presenting these to me and others in the community.

The ACBC is a vibrant organization that offers a rich cultural environment for everyone in Beaufort County to immerse themselves in, whether as an active member or as a passive observer who comes only to enjoy the fruits of their labors. It contributes to the rounding out and enriching of childrens' lives through their efforts with a variety of classroom events and theater experiences. It offers space and encouragement to emerging artists to develop their talents It presents exhibits of new as well as established artists. It is open and welcoming to everyone who walks in the door. And it is kept afloat through the unselfish effots of a slue of volunteers who do everything from major construction to stuffing envelopes.

WE, as a family love ARTWORKS! Thank you for offering such great
adult and children art classes. My daughter can't wait for the next
class to start before the current class is over! The grandparents love
to watch the kids and see their creations both on stage and on the
walls.
The concerts at Port Royal have been a great form of entertainment. Having such a variety of artworks offered through their program is a
great reason to live here. Receiving emails consistently advising you
of and when everything is being offered and what is happening around
town is a pleasure. Thank you, you have enlightened our lives!!

Nothing other than to bring in more donations so that they can continue to offer and create even more programs! They are all great hard working people and deserve all the funding that is possible.

In the last two or three years, the Arts Council of Beaufort County has made a comeback after a period of diminished vitality for an important part of the community. The renewed energy is almost palpable in the visibility, variety, and quality of its offerings to the public. From the working art studios to the children's programs to the performances, there is excitement. I had the pleasure last Saturday of attending Natalie Daise's one-woman play about Harriet Tubman. It was not only a performance worthy of Broadway, but its impact on me and my friends has been profound and haunting. This is a great asset to the community.

I am a singer/songwriter and truly find it inspiring when I am in the Arts Council. Not only am I inspired by the artwork, black box theater, artists that commune on a daily basis but the ambiance is very reflective of what my life is about which is creativity.
Let me just share a great story
that recently transpired within the Arts Council. As of recently I am in the process of recording my third album and was listening to some music to begin my writing process while at ARTworks (Arts Council of Beaufort) and just began looking around and the creative spirits began to flow very loudly and quickly. Needless to say the song was written in a very short amount of time. My concept for the video would require a dancer so I began asking around and made some phone calls, left messages and moved on to another song. Well as it would happen I was in the Arts Council again and was approached by a dancer whom I had left a message with, well she wanted to hear the song and was immediately inspired and wanted to do an improv, so they played the music in the theater and the dancer went onstage to do her improv which was beautiful and amazing. We are now preparing to perform the song together and upcoming event. These are the amazing types of things that can happen at the Arts Council.

Arts Council / ARTworks offers it ALL for the arts ... the performing arts, the visual arts, & the literary arts. They nurture our community through programs & workshops for adults, children & their resident artists. Their advocacy and communications for the arts throughout Beaufort County is all-encompassing. Their commitment to fiscal responsibility for the organization and its donors remains solid. It's been an honor to serve on this board and work with the staff over many years.

Three generations of our family enjoy the experiences provided by the Arts Council and its headquarters, ArtWorks. The grandparents attend concerts and dramatic productions, the children indulge their artistic and dramatic passions, the grandchildren are able to take classes in everything from watercolors to circus skills. The entire county attends the free street concerts in Port Royal arranged by the Arts Council.

Enlarge the donor base. Increase awareness that it is not government funded but relies on contributions.

I originally came to know about ARTworks through their wonderful after school art programs. My children fell in love (with the people, the atmosphere, and the opportunities to create) and thus so did I. I found myself striving to be a part of any and everything they offered-theatre productions, concerts, arts summit... I am currently serving on the Board of Directors and honestly feel proud to be part of such a dynamic group.

The Great!

Enable to have an outside performance area close to their current location.
