Sullivan said the alley gets a lot of foot traffic already, so it would be a great way to give local artists some exposure. If more people see their work, it’s more likely to sell — the ultimate goal for the artists.
“We want our artists to become exporters, which adds to our economic base,” she said.
The committee is still looking for artists interested in creating pieces for the alley when it opens, which they hope will be in August.
Committee members, including Artworks Gallery Coordinator Karen Taylor, have been telling local artists all about the opportunity. Many of them are getting excited about it now.
“They’re catching the vision,” she said.
