We foster collaborations between organizations and champion individuals and businesses that engage in creative expression.
History demonstrates that culture instigates change. We see our role as a community arts organization to facilitate our local and aspiring artists. We recognize a handful of artists each year with our annual Art and Scholarship Awards, and produce the annual Nutcracker Faire. We engage in advocacy as collaborator and consensus builder, partnering with other organizations to ensure that visual, performing, and literary arts flourish and remain accessible to all in our community.

Artists will be introduced to methods of working in oil and cold wax through an intuitive process utilizing various non-traditional mark making tools. Cold wax (a mix of beeswax, resin, and odorless mineral spirits ) is applied at room temperature and combined with oil paint to become a sensuous butter-cream texture—a lot of fun to work! Combining this mixture in many layers with marks, collage elements, pigments etc. produces results with texture and depth that cannot be duplicated in any other medium. This is a different process from encaustic and does not involve the use of heat.
