Behind the Scenes @ ArtWorks -> Nancy Novell

This month, we are opening the doors and inviting everyone in to see behind the scenes at Triangle ArtWorks. Meet the people that helped us get off the ground in 2010 and those working hard today to keep us running.  Learn why they are giving their time and talents to build this Organization to support you – the Triangle Arts Community.

Nancy Novell

 

Nancy Novell, a local potter, is currently Chair of the Raleigh Arts Commission and has long been very involved in the arts in Raleigh.   Nancy believed in Triangle ArtWorks from the beginning.  When ArtWorks began in 2010, she was a Founding Board member. She was one of the volunteers who stepped up to help with the huge task of research and writing to load the website.  As a Founding Board member, she also was involved in developing our initial Strategic Plan and a player in building the Organization you see today.

Why were/are you willing to give your time/talents to support Triangle ArtWorks.

Triangle Artworks was and continues to be quite a large undertaking. In the beginning, I was able to jump right in as we were reaching out, community by community, organization by organization, to determine the scope of what was already available and happening in all areas of the arts in the Triangle region. Working with the Board on collating information, determining the brand, and creating the website were all positive steps toward visualizing a coordinated Triangle-wide creative community.

Why do you think that Triangle ArtWorks is important for the Triangle arts community and the Triangle itself.

Serving as a collaborative arts resource for the Triangle’s creative community can strengthen and enhance all that the arts are and do in each individual community. Triangle ArtWorks has the vision to work holistically and bring all things arts related to one accessible clearinghouse.
