We were privileged enough to speak to Chris Sloan director of the Allegany Arts Council. We discussed some of the annual events that the Arts Council hosts; including the Art Sale and Tour featuring 24 local artists and their studios over two weekends. (October 17-18 and 24-25) The Arts Council offers opportunities to local and national artists to exhibit in their galleries. Chris discusses where he envisions our local arts community in the upcoming years. Chris is excited for the Arts Council to help spearhead some excellent opportunities for new upcoming artists and helping nurture the already vibrant existing community. The Arts council is a member based organization and a great place to volunteer in your community and you can help keep this area alive with art!
