Business, art, church communities come together

Gaston Arts Council Executive Director Kim George succeeded in bringing together the business community, arts community and church community in a single Chamber Network After Work event on April 11, 2019.

She arranged for the Arts Council to host the monthly Chamber networking reception in the Family Life Center at Park Street United Methodist Church in Belmont, where she also scheduled several artists to exhibit their work, and booked a theatrical performance of "The Loss World Monologues 2.0" immediately following the reception. 

Los Angeles singer/songwriter Kelly Z performed the one-woman play, adapted from a book by Mary London Szpara, who also attended and led a discussion after the performance. The book and play are based on her writings about the grief she experienced, and still experiences, after the death of her husband. More information available here:
