As the owner of a for-profit gallery focusing on the arts, it has been a privilege to partner with the Arts Council of Windham County in helping present the annual Student Art Month, a program that for more than 20 years has featured the works of area students. The ACWC also sponsors Gallery Walk in Brattleboro, which features between 35 and 55 new displays of art with openings on the first Friday of each month throughout the year.

The Arts Council of Windham County (ACWC) is Brattleboro's arts hub. The Council helps put artists, musicians, photographers, performers in touch with people and resources they need to make artistic connections in Windham County. The mission of the Arts Council of Windham County (ACWC) is to “To strengthen the environment for artists and arts organizations in Windham County”. They are working on an interactive calendar promoting upcoming activities, links to Artists, working with the Brattleboro Museum and Art Gallery and the Chamber of Commerce.

Student Art Month encourages students to exhibit their work to the public for a month's viewing. All media, all styles...gives both the student and their teachers recognition in local shops of Brattleboro and Bellows Falls.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure that it got greater recognition as it is the link between the artist and the community; that it is the draw for each Gallery Walk Friday where over 30 retail establishments show local art; that the Arts Council of Windham County tries to make a difference in the lives of the residents of Brattleboro by being the fiscal umbrella for fledging non-profit arts groups.
