How are you involved with the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum? 

My involvement started many years ago when I would attend shows my mother was in. Then I started putting some of my art pieces in the gift shop. I was encouraged by Jerry Draper to submit pieces to the juried shows and was quite surprised when my pieces were chosen! Being encouraged by Jerry; as well as the staff from Gadsden Arts has given me so much confidence to keep creating.

 

Why do you invest your time and resources in the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum?

Each individual artist contributes a bit of self to the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum each time they either submit a piece of art or volunteer their time, which I feel truly makes Gadsden Arts a community within a community.


What is the #1 reason you feel the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum has value for the people in our community?


The Gadsden Arts Center & Museum provides a beautiful environment; as well as a rich history for the community to be exposed to a wide variety of art mediums; as well as the opportunity for artist to share their inspirations with others.


Describe one specific instance or experience in which the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum touched your life.

When Jerry Draper expressed to me I should submitted my first piece for a juried show and was chosen gave me an enormous boost in my confidence.
