The Arts Council of the Twin Counties’ 25th anniversary celebration and auction is a reminder of what the organization is about, as the money raised will fund scholarships and art programs in schools.
The celebration will be held Saturday and will include jazz, dinner and a silent auction.
The Arts Council regularly sponsors area arts organizations and in 2011 merged with the Galax Theatre Guild to ensure the continued production of live community theater.
An outdoor stage to be constructed this year in a wooded area behind the office of the Arts Council of the Twin Counties will commemorate 37 years of the Galax Theatre Guild.
“When I came here and I saw this spot, I thought, ‘What a perfect place for an outdoor concert,’” said Laura Romanowski, director of the arts council. “We wanted something permanent to match the many years that the guild spent producing plays.”
