“Members of the Art Society have been participating in several fundraisers this year to provide the more than $1,000 in funds necessary to make this show a reality each year,” Case said. “We thank those of you who have supported us in our efforts.

“We have a small group, and our members work so hard throughout the year to make this show happen so we can showcase the talents and creativity of our campus communities. Our club is here to provide a creative outlet to anyone in our campus communities who wishes to attend our meetings and be a part of the group, whether they’re fine artists, doodlers, photographers, crafters or those who just appreciate the arts and being creative. We’re always looking to add to our membership.”
