SOUTHCOAST ARTISTS INDEX

In-focus

ARTICLES

An on-going series of articles focusing on the makers, creators, performers, and supporters of the local creative community. These In-Focus articles chronicle our local visual, performing and literary artists.

We will write about the scholars, journalists, researchers, and genealogists who are seeking information on specific Artists or, what they’ve discovered about those that were an integral part of the creative community’s in days gone by.

The Artists Index is putting Artists in their place – in history!
