Hello everyone, Happy 2019! We have an amazing year of exhibits, workshops and summer concerts planned. When we plan programming for the year, we take a close look at our mission and audience and work to ensure the entire community has access to art and creative expression of all kinds. As you go through our upcoming events, you will see opening receptions scheduled for each of our exhibits; if you have never been to an opening reception, let me encourage you to join us. These receptions are a great opportunity to meet the artists, enjoy the exhibit with other individuals who are interested in the show (we’ve had some great conversations!), and share your thoughts with Arts Alliance Board members. You will also see that we have a kick-off event for our 2019 Public Art Project on January 27. Local historian Carol Cartwright will give us a look at Whitewater History, and inspire artists for their public art pieces. Everyone is welcome to attend; even if you don’t plan to create a piece of public art, you will learn something new about our community and its rich history. It promises to be informative and fun – join us! The opportunities for local and regional artists to exhibit their work and enhance their skills, and for the community to experience visual art, music and creativity in a new way—these are the reasons why the Whitewater Arts Alliance exists. Many thanks to the volunteers who are working on these opportunities – they wouldn’t happen without the dedicated individuals who work tirelessly behind the scenes. Do something creative today – and visit us at the CAC!
