A Note from the Executive Director

Dear friends,

I am so grateful for each and every one of you who contributed to make ArtsMarket 2017 a success!

That list includes all presenters, exhibitors, and supporters who attended, showcase artists who consistently brought down the house, our lovely and hospitable host venues, the North Carolina Arts Council for its incredible partnership, the technical crew who are the best anyone could ask for, the ArtsMarket staff and volunteers who gave so much time and talent, the NCPC board for their strong support, and of course our generous sponsors!

It was truly a pleasure and an honor to be together with you all.  More than once I was reminded of how lucky I am to be doing what I'm doing....I hope you were, too.

My very best,
Susan Heiserman
