Peter Grant elected as President of the Huntsville Art League

Last Tuesday while in Baltimore I was elected as the new President for Huntsville Art League. As if the President of the Huntsville Art League’s Advisory Board wasnt enough I have jumped in with both feet to help the organization focus on promoting art in the Huntsville area and help the league with the marking campaign. The following is the first new letter I wrote for the President’s letter.

If you live in the Huntsville area I invite you to join us and get involved. There is a lot going on as the city of Huntsville grows with the expansion of Redstone Arsenal. We need your support and involvement.

New President’s Slogan: “Where Art Starts”

We are moving into some exciting times with Huntsville Art League!

Thank you for your vote of confidence for me as your President. Your new board members are excited to be part of the team for the 2011 – 2012 year. Please welcome: 1st VP- Martina Svoboda; 2nd VP- Marc Hilden; Secretary Susan Clanton; and
Treasurer Fred McBride.

We owe a special thank you to Dan Tatum as your 2010 – 2011 President and his board: 1st VP Martina Svoboda (Replaced Connie Cook); 2nd VP Ann Steverson; Secretary, Susan Clanton; and Treasurer, Mary Ellen Davidson. Their hard work at Huntsville Art League is appreciated!

We have much to accomplish with the coming year and I look forward to the challenge.

First of all I want Huntsville Art League to be known throughout the community as the place “Where Art Starts”. Well this doesn’t mean we replace the many wonderful art museums, galleries and other fun places in Huntsville. What it does mean is we are a home for every artist of all backgrounds and experiences where they can learn and develop their skills and talents. From the art league they can reach out and explore other organizations but Huntsville Art League will always be their home. I see The Huntsville Art League as a ‘home base’ where people of all ages, abilities, and cultural backgrounds can get started on or continue on their artistic path.

My vision for Huntsville Art League:

Expand our visibility and increase awareness of ‘who we are’ and ‘what we do’
Increase and improve on our educational offerings and programs
Increase awareness to younger artists and children there is a place for them
Strengthen our relationship with our Alumni Artists
Improve relations with all the other art organizations in the community
Strengthen our sponsorship programs and our financial base
The Advisory Board becomes a voice and connection to the community

We need your support. Please keep volunteering and getting involved with our many programs. I know it is difficult to take time from our busy schedules. Each of you is important to Huntsville Art League and we need your talents to make us a place “Where Art Starts”!

Thank you for your support of Huntsville Art League,

Peter Grant, President
Huntsville Art League
