Arts and Culture Alliance spotlights artists

Marshall County Arts and Culture Alliance remains a great resource for many talented artists.

The organization’s next project — the August Artist Spotlight — will give artists visibility. During the month of August, the Alliance will shine spotlights on artists on their Facebook and Instagram pages. They can be found on Facebook at “ArtsandCultureAlliance” and Instagram at “arts_and_culture_alliance.”

Amber Danielson, executive director of the Arts Alliance, said this is another way for the organization to support Marshall County artists.

“We are constantly amazed at the gifted creators we have in Marshall County and we will take any chance we can to highlight them,” she said. “We are passionate about creating a sense of community to help our artists succeed.”

Artists in Marshall County can get involved by ensuring their information is listed on the Arts Alliance’s website. Those not already listed can contact director@artsandculturealliance.org.

The listings are free to area artists and can be for any type of art, including paintings, photography, books, music and many other forms.

Danielson said they will spotlight any local artist who is interested.

“We anticipate around 20-25 local artists to be featured throughout the month,” she said. “However, we will feature as many as requested to be listed on our website. The more, the merrier.”

Marshall County artists ranging from those just starting out to people who have years of experience can also join the private Facebook group “Artist Network of Marshall County” to network and learn from each other. The group shares upcoming opportunities, grants and events.

All residents can benefit from the August Artist Spotlight by enjoying the work of talented artists. Upcoming projects will continue to bring art to the community, beautifying the town and enriching the lives of those who live here.

Danielson is excited about the Arts Alliance’s upcoming projects.

“Stay tuned for local artist, Dye Davenport, to create a new piece on the Great Western Bank rotating graffiti wall,” she said. “The wall is located on East State Street and North First Ave. We are so excited about this partnership with a local downtown business and local artist to bring beauty and creativity to our community.”
