“The Arts provide us with many media from which we might create a unique interpretation of who we are as artists.  When we uniquely combine our techniques with our spirit we produce our “Personal Best”. All Arts Council members are urged to display a piece of visual artwork in our Main Street Petite Gallery that shows us at our best.  From these wonderful examples we will all benefit and be inspired for the future – personally and artistically”.
