A message from the Executive Director
Jan/Feb '12 Featured Artist Member - Loretta Tryon

My work seeks and translates forms found in nature and designs I create. I thrive on the spontaneity of creating one design that leads to the next in my work. I’m inspired by the human form, organic forms, patterns and my drawings. Positive and negative spaces play a prominent role in designing. By creating new templates and exploring the enduring qualities of metal I create jewelry and sculpture, balancing between chance and control. In the process of hammer forming metal the flat sheet changes into subtle transitions creating a sense of movement...

A message from the Executive Director

Why arts research?

Throughout 2011, the Lehigh Valley Arts Council gathered data for Arts & Economic Prosperity IV, our fourth economic impact study of the region’s nonprofit arts industry since 1997. (I am pleased to report that 88 cultural nonprofits participated.) Data collection and analysis are essential advocacy tools because the information a community learns can chart the growth of an industry over time, identify current trends and help shape public policy. SAVE THIS DATE: On June 7, 2012, the Lehigh Valley Arts Council and the Lehigh Valley Partnership will convene a public forum, Whose Business is the Arts?, to announce the findings. Ben Cameron, Program Director for the Arts at the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, will deliver the keynote address.

The forum presents a unique opportunity for arts, government, and business leaders to confront a changing arts and cultural landscape. The economic stagnation and declining participation in the arts of the past few years indicate nonprofits can no longer depend on 50% or more of unearned income to balance their budgets. After a decade of expansion in arts facilities, communities must now turn their attention to serious issues of sustainability and finding ways for nonprofits to be more entrepreneurial.

The event will take place at Cedar Crest College in Allentown. Stay tuned for more program details.
