Our vision is Travelers Rest as a premier "small town" for the arts, entertainment, and culture in the Southeastern United States! Since its inception in 2013, the Travelers Rest Artists Alliance (TRAA) has been committed to supporting community creativity and engagement by advancing the arts, entertainment and culture to enrich quality of life, education, and economic development in the region. Through ongoing events and programs aimed at mentoring emerging artists, supporting the business and promotional needs of individual artists, arts education, and public art/community outreach projects we will continue to foster community and economic growth opportunities in our area.
Susan Savage, President
Message from the President...
Hello all! My Name is Susan Savage. Some of you I know. Many of you I am looking forward to meeting! Art on the Trail #6 was a huge success! Over 70 artisans presented their craft for sale to our crowd. The weather cooperated, and we had a steady crowd throughout the day! Special thanks to the Travelers Rest Historical Society and the Travelers Rest High School drama students for their excellent portrayals of historical TR characters!
What a great year it has been for art in our community!! And, we have more wonderful opportunities in the works: -TRAA Christmas Parade entry – looking for volunteers - TRAA Board needs a Treasurer (we use QuickBooks Pro) - Art on the Trail 2018 committee is forming
Of course, we want you all to be TRAA Members. So, please join! Just click here: JOIN
Not sure what to give friends and family for Christmas? Why not donate to the arts? If you donate $500 or more, I will personally send 10 people of your choice a hand-crafted holiday donation gift card. Contact me at email@example.com!
