The Greater Flint Arts Council has been a beacon to which many are drawn, me with artwork in hand. I have been given the opprotunity to show my work for going on 5 years. The arts council has helped give reason and respect to my work in a way unparalleled in my life thus far. Not only is my work shown consistently I find myself in situations that are a big stretch for me. I have a serious case of social anxiety. I also volunteer for openings and am getting better at being around crowds. I am rather phobic in tight crowded areas but these openings bring out artists and supporters and I know we depend on their (my)attendence in order to be successful. Just being there and the people I have met there has taught me alot. Being part of the arts council gives me hope and something to work towards. I am disabled from the military and was quite isolated until I found this outlet and other outlets that Kathy Johnson has helped me research. It's amazing to me to have found this organization in Flint, Michigan, a town whose negative reputation completely contrasts what's going on in the art community here with the Greater Flint Arts Council leading the way.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting outside myself and meeting other artists and supporters. One man I met recently at a opening I actually mention my uncomfortableness around people and he said he use to be the same way and shared with me how he got over it.

I have been to many different communities that are far larger than Flint and they do not offer such a wonderful local gallery with such high quality art. The Greater Flint Arts Council is a gem and your community is lucky to have it.

I have been enjoying the wonderful artists and shows that the Arts council does for many many years. The arts council is without a doubt one of the best gems that Genessee County has to offer, for that matter the state of Michigan. The art walk, the Quilt shows and my favorite The Flint Jazz Festival that I am a volunteer for, for many years. If you have never been into the Gallery at the council you are missing some great art by are local artists. Every year I see the arts council giving this community something great to rejoice about. I hope it never changes but to grow

apathy in the community about things to do. people are always saying there is nothing to do. If they just looked around themselves they would be able to see there is alot to do

The Greater Flint Arts Council is a shining star in our small metropolis. Their whole scenario during the 2nd Friday Artwalk is comparable to any "big city" event. Thanks to the creative talents of Greg and Cathy GFAC is a strength in our community!
