Being an artist can sometimes be isolating. Visual artists usually create alone in a studio. Musicians spend countless solitary hours practicing their craft. In an effort to bring artists together to meet each other and hopefully inspire some creative collaborations, the Arts Council has begun holding Artists Meetups throughout the county, specifically for artists to get to know each other, aspire to be better artists through shared creative passions, and improve our community through the arts.
