ASCAC Artist Members are local artists. Each month, we will spotlight one of the artist. Please let me know if anyone is interested in featuring your Art work in the window of the Art center. As you all know artists get to display solo for a whole month. It is a great opportunity at no expense to the artist. Please let me know and I will be available to help you set up :) Thank you and hope to hear from you all soon and eager for your participation. Have a great weekend. Regards, Yasmin Hasnain Arts Council.Read More
