The Arts Conosrtium will be moving to a new location in front of the Lumberyard! Our new address will be 300 E. Oak. We will be making the move through out the month of March with our last day in the current location being March 31.
We are sad to leave such a beautiful gallery space but it is for the financial stabilty of the organization that we are making the move. We want to continue to promote the arts in Tulare County and to keep My Voice Media Center going strong. Plans for both entities to grow and expand need financial support to go forward. We are hoping this move will help us to achive our goals. As always your donations to the Arts Consortium help us as well!
A lot of hard work from Erin, Caroline and McKenna made our current building into a wonderful space. Ampelio and myself are hoping to do the same for the new location.
We have always had great community support and I hope you will show us the same love in our new space.
Thank you for your continuing support!!!
The 400 N. Church address is up for sale or lease through Whitlatch Realty.

Dear friends of the Arts Consortium:
Our Program Director, McKenna Friend-Hoffman, has announced her resignation. McKenna has been with the Arts Consortium for nearly 5 years. Among many other things, she has facilitated new programs for the organization including the Kid’s Club art activities, the Artists’ in Schools residency program, the South Valley Artists’ Studio Tour, and the First Friday art crawl.
While we are very sad to see her go, we wish McKenna the best of luck as she pursues other opportunities.
“I have learned so much about the nonprofit world and nonprofit management in the past five years. The Arts Consortium was my first job and it definitely became my dream job. I was able to try so many things and meet so many wonderful people. I am so thankful for what the Arts Consortium offers our community and I will continue to be an advocate for the arts,” McKenna says.
The Board wants to ensure a smooth transition that will not disrupt the great work we are doing on a daily basis. The organization is in the very capable hands of staff members Ampelio Mejia Perez and Joan Constable. While we work to restructure operations and responsibilities, please know you can reach out to us at any time with questions or concerns.
We look forward to the next phase of the Arts Consortium. We are already working hard to make this year one of stability and opportunity. Onward into 2017!
President of the Board
