CARTEPET ARTS COUI'ICIL is suddenly bursting with energy and offerinr us
lots of opportunities to indulrre our creative whins. They were the
ones who gave us the beautiful ballet (through the North Carolina School
of the Arts) in New Bern recently, and the fine folk singer, Claudia Schmidt
who perform.ed at one of the covered dish suppers at Bop-ue Banks Country
Club a few weeks ago. Steamed up to pror:ote all the arts for all the peoiftle
in the county, the arts council is busy welcoming new members these
days* dues are $5.00 per year, payable to Car>teret Arts Council, c/o
Charles McNeill, 120 Turner St., Beaufort, N.C., 28516. They meet at 7;3ppm
the second Monday of each month, if different places (announced ahead of
time, of course) and usually, in addition to the business meeting, there
is some sort of program. Remember, this is an all encompassing art thing'
the T/isual, the musical, the theatre, and so on - you have an art angle to
plug, you join and work it into their set-up. Looks as if we are not at
the end of the world down here at all; only geofTraphically, really, and that
won*'t stop us from im-porting culture and from nurturing the culture and
talent we have in our very midst. And, speaking of in our mddst, the two
artists represented at the opening of the Marine Resources Center on Sept.10
are very much around. LISA liORPIIEI' is an artist in residence in "Beaufort -
did you see her lovely bird photos that day on display? And EVA THALLER,
v7hose water colors uere adm^ired the same day, is a visiting artist at CTI.
The Arts Council is juptly proud of both these personable young ladies.

overlooking the canal. They have lived a lot of places, including ^Thite-
