As a former board member and current supporter, I can say that I am very impressed with what the Arts Council has become under the leadership of JW and Jenny. The variety of offerings and the ease with which they embrace new opportunities is inspiring and refreshing.

This is such a wonderful place where children and adults can participate in and experience so many forms of Art. I have volunteered as an actor. Working on my art here in The Black Box theater has enriched my life as ArtWorks does everyone's who walk through their doors. Thank you Arts Council of Beaufort.

My husband and I are visitors in Beaufort county. We purchased a house and are planning to move to the area in a few years. As visitors we like to have a source of cultural and art information. I searched the web for a good source for Beaufort county and identified this organization. They have a wonderful newsletter with local information and a calendar of events. It is very helpful to have an organization that consolidates this information and sends it out in a regular email. Since I signed up, I have taken pottery classes at home, continue to make knitted items and participated in a number of craft fairs. I have been able to identify pottery classes in Beaufort. While we are visiting this year, we strolled around beautiful Beaufort and discovered a wonderful art supply and yarn stores. We also visited Hunting Island State Park. The Art Council of Beaufort does a wonderful job of attracting visitors to Beaufort and the sea islands and supplying information to visitors, artists, artisans and art lovers.

ARTworks literally changed my life last year, when I was in play and got to know the space, the management, and the vision they had for the arts, particularly in my meidum of choice, theater. I then produced and directed a play there last summer that "success" doesn't begin to describe, especially to me, since I had struggled with little success to find a place to put up the shows I wanted to do for almost a decade. Now I consider it my second home, and I continue to be thrilled at watching people discover what ARTworks has to offer actors and audiences alike.The word is so overused, but ARworks really is AMAZING!

I was lucky enough to attend the opening of the Jonathan Green show in '10, and even luckier, I met him and had a lovely conversation with him!For 10 minutes! I have loved his work ever since my first lunch in Plum's in 2000 when his prints decorated the restaurant's walls, and Richard and I have a beautifully framed print of his in our house in Habersham.

The ambiance at ARTworks was so relaxed and welcoming to all of us, and it was just a great treat to meet this fabulous person as well as to hear him describe to all of us present how his art evolved and how he lives his life. What an unforgettable evening!

Thank you for making that possible!

Living in Beaufort has been wonderful but discovering the Arts Council offerrings has added deeper dimension to my life. I find myself attending as many functions as I can and am always impressed by the quality of talent available in this area. I am so thankful the Council continues to enthusiastically recruit and use local talent as well as continue to develop more talent by offering great classes and speakers. In hard times, we especially treasure and appreciate the gift of the arts.

we are planning on moving to Beaufort County but are still living in Colorado and yet I am already reading the Arts Council email every month and have signned up for a class to be taken in April even if we have not moved yet . I love their art openings and how they support the new and local arts. As a professional artist I can not wait to get even more involved.

They are really reaching out to the Arts Community. They organized a summit meeting and invited all interested parties concerned about the Arts in Beaufort County. The purpose was to get ideas on the table, find a group of concerned citizens and art providers to work together, and to come up with a plan on how to keep Arts alive. We have many problems with funding here and problems with communication about events. So, hopefully with us working together we can find a way to keep art available to the public and our students.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely dedicated to the cause. They are eager and open to ideas. They were very helpful when we wrote the grant application for our youth orchestra. And they are so encouraging for our students.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

support all the Arts in Beaufort County. This is not realistic a request for our small town. But, we need financial support for our Symphony and our Performing Arts. We also need financial assistance with school programs. They are taking away Strings.

Before I became a member of the board, I always enjoyed the atrs scene in Beaufort, which included various activities and events put on by the ACBC. So I was pleased to become a board member and become more actively involved in fundraising and helping out wherever I can. The arts are a very big part of Beaufort and the ACBC is definitely a leading organization when it comes promoting the arts in all forms.
