Save the date! Rites of Spring: Wednesday, April 16th, 5-7:30pm

Graystone Mansion, 50 South 1st Ave., Coatesville, PA 19320

Join us as we welcome Spring and our new executive director, Terry Foreman to Art Partners Studio. Enjoy live music, refreshments, a teacher/student art show, and the company of artists, art students & their families, community partners, and art patrons. Everyone is welcome, no reservations required. Help us wish founding director Lindsay Brinton well on her much-deserved retirement and come see what Art Partners Studio is planning for the new year!

Art Partners Studio welcomes Terry Foreman as our new Executive Director, beginning February 3.

We are pleased to engage Terry's talents as we build on the Studio's solid foundation put in place by outgoing Founding & Executive Director, Lindsay Brinton.

Terry's enthusiasm for the Studio's mission is combined with experience in nonprofit management, fundraising, marketing, and program development. With Terry, and other partners across the City, we will work tirelessly to grow and sustain a dynamic visual arts education program for Coatesville's residents and artistic experiences that enrich the lives of our neighbors and the broader community.

Leading an arts organization is familiar ground to Foreman. She comes to the Art Partners Studio from her position as a founding member and Executive Director of the Newark Arts Alliance in Newark, Delaware. She understands what it takes to "start" something and to create an art presence on Main Street. Now in its 20th year, the Newark Arts Alliance is a thriving community cultural center with two galleries and a busy teaching space open to the public 6 days a week.

Terry has worked as an arts advocate and arts program coordinator for over twenty years—most recently as an art teacher in an alternative education setting, Newark Center for Creative Learning School. She is a working studio artist, exhibiting her photography, fiber arts, mosaics and public murals throughout the region.

I hope you will all welcome her as the Studio's Executive Director, beginning February 3.

Thank you, Kirstin Wentz McElroy, President
