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.

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.

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.

The recent Arts Summit at the Arts council of Beaufort was a wonderful event. Having so many artists (about 80) from all over Beaufort together in one room was enlightening and joyful. I know more good things will come from this meeting.
