Artists Town Meeting

Bellows Falls, VT February 27, 2008

Robert McBride, Executive Director of the Rockingham Arts and Museum Project (RAMP) has issued a call to all local artists to attend an Artists Town Meeting on Wednesday, February 27, 2008 from 6 - 8 pm at Boccelli's On the Canal, 46 Canal Street in Bellows Falls. The purpose of the event is to gather local artists for a conversation about the "State of the Arts" in the community and to mobilize people interested in participating in upcoming arts opportunities such as affordable housing and work space, sharing ideas on exhibitions, the Vermont Crafts Council Open Studio Weekend and the annual RAMP Arts Raffle.

"We're excited to present this opportunity for newly arrived and established local artists to meet each other and have a dialogue about the importance of the arts in our community." Says McBride. "There is an ever-growing community of working artists in our midst, all of whom are contributing greatly to the cultural and economic vitality of the area. One of RAMP's many roles is to be an advocate for the arts, and in order to be effective in that role, we seek opportunities to hear from local artists and assist them in making community connections that benefit us all."
