The Rome Art Coterie is an organization of artists and non-artists that supports the visual arts in Rome, Georgia, USA and the surrounding communities. Individuals are encouraged to join this group for personal enrichment and camaraderie while studying and producing two and three-dimensional art.
I've been able to be President of the group three of the last four years and have seen the group grow - externally. Our membership has been between 30-40 each year. We've had a quarterly series of exhibits at Rome City Hall appropriately titled "Art at the Hall" for nearly three years. We're about to offer the Second Annual Jane McCord Art Educators Mini-Grant for local public school art teachers. We're also about to have our third collaboration with the Rome Area Writers on Thursday, February 12. And that's on top of our wonderful monthly programming.
The Coterie has developed due to a supportive membership and a devoted Executive Committee. I'm thankful to have served.
