Support Art Works Now!

?Our community is always growing and Art Works Now is committed to welcoming our newest neighbors. To help them settle into life in the U.S. we are partnering with the Immigrant & Refugee Outreach Center to collect some basic necessities for local refugee families. We invite you to bring unopened full-sized toiletries and cleaning supplies to the concert and IROC will distribute them to families in need.
Thank you for your support.


Straight from the Apollo Theater in NYC, Carly will entertain us with her unique sound. She skillfully combines Blues, Jazz, Soul, and Americana styles that call to mind Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, and Nina Simone with a little Ella Fitzgerald thrown in for good measure. This performance is not to be missed!

For over a decade the staff and teaching artists at Art Works Now have been sharing visual arts programs with a beautiful community of creators. Our work is inspired by our commitment to nurture a thoughtful and healthy community of creative individuals.


Volunteers needed!
