The Art Center was organized in 2014 to allow the rural community to gather and learn arts from each other and professional art instructors. TAC has brought together artists of varied experiences with programs that are so successful that most artists return for each new session. TAC offers both children’s and adult art classes and camps and sponsors exhibitions from both, as well as an annual RUSD art exhibition.


Mission Statement

The Art Center is an inclusive community art space where art as a process is paramount and where the community and the artist are put into direct contact.


Vision Statement

We are interested in creating a rural community art space where Traditional, Expressive and Conceptual Artists come in contact with each other and the larger community. Envision a place where the art is paramount and the atmosphere is intelligent educational and welcoming, a professional place where Local Artists, Visiting Artists, Emerging Artists, and Established Artists mingle. Our goal is to build an artistic community through socialization, thereby removing the often-isolating effect of working as an artist in a rural area. Imagine a large space for artists to work, classes to be taught, exhibitions, and art talks to be held. The Art Center should have a salon atmosphere where deep conversations about art as a verb could be had. It would be a place where you don’t just walk through, but you hang and process what has been seen and made, a place where you can come away with more of an understanding and appreciation of all art. Through this portal, we will strengthen the Artistic and Economical places of all the Arts in the local Community.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Statement

The Art Center believes that art can bridge cultures and promote social cohesion by cutting through the barriers of all socio-economic conditions. No person, regardless of age, creed, ethnicity, or orientation, will be excluded from the Art Centers activities.

The Art Center has implemented a zero-tolerance policy toward hate speech or activity. In addition, TAC is pursuing partnerships with the BIPOC and LGBTQ communities and all marginalized communities. The Art Center believes that art can expand opportunities for understanding one another, promoting a sense of belonging and worth.
