Artists around us
Being an artist is a complicated pursuit. It is an essential part of our society while at the same time a profession that quite often looks outside it. The world needs artists because they show us not only what is around us in exacting or new light, but also things, places and objects that are yet to be imagined.
I envision a community that supports these artists by exhibiting their work, buying their wares, and engaging in a dialogue of their artistic journey, making the Upper Delaware a unique, creative and forward-thinking place to live.
