Sawtooth School for Visual Art and Winston-Salem Delta Fine Arts are pleased to announce a new cooperative agreement to benefit their respective members and supporters. Effective July 1, Delta Arts members will be able to register for Sawtooth classes and workshops at the discounted Sawtooth member rate, and Sawtooth members will be invited to attend select exhibitions and events at Delta Arts Center free of charge.
“It makes perfect sense for us to develop a stronger relationship with Delta,” said JoAnne Vernon, Executive Director of the Sawtooth School. “We’re both visual arts organizations, we’re both funded partners of the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Arts Council, and we both want to expand our reach and serve a larger segment of the community.” Daphne Holmes-Johnson, Interim Executive Director of Delta Arts Center concurred, adding that “while Delta’s primary focus is on exhibiting art, the Sawtooth’s School’s primary focus is on art instruction, so our programming is more complementary than it is competitive. Furthermore, there’s very little duplication between the membership rosters of our two organizations, so this is a great way for each of us to reach new audiences while offering our members enhanced benefits. We will continue to explore other ways to collaborate during the year.”
