Art SceneGayle Mortell

I was down in the Center for the Arts Gallery the other day when a fellow came in and said, I didnt even know you were here! I said Really? How long have you lived in Glenwood?Six years,Oh my gosh, here let me show you around.This man made me think of how many other people out there have never been here. Where are you? This is such a cool place, and there is always so much that goes on here. We are a too-busy, too-tired society. I even feel it in myself sometimes. So here is a cordial invitation to all of you out there: Please come and see the Center for the Arts. Check out the progress on the renovation project. Check out the art in the gallery. Check out the pottery, stone and art studios. Check out our class schedules for dance, pottery, silversmithing, fine art, stone sculpting, voice, piano, guitar, drama. We have it all dont miss out.And another important point: We believe arts are for everyone we believe in accessibility. Come as you are.
