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.
The Arts Council is the heart and soul of the ARTS in our area! So grateful for their knowledge and expertise. Their varied means of communication are perfect for arts-minded folks like me, constantly keeping us updated on the pulse of the Arts - where to go, what's available, how to get involved - LOVE IT! Walking into their Boundary Street location is a breath of fresh air - artists all around, art to enjoy, a welcoming atmosphere! Can't beat it! I love the classes they offer for young people. My children have taken numerous classes and many of my students are enrolled right now. They make every effort to help those in need still have the opportunity to participate as well.
Review from Guidestar
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!
Review from Guidestar
I have been a resident artist, member and volunteer for ACBC. I have had many great experience with the organization and I feel that they are a great, and underappreciated voice for the arts in Beaufort County.
I had such a great time. We truly collaborated. I was truly inspired!! Watch out Beaufort!! Art IS Business, and Art makes Business Better...
