Beth Morean

“After 23 years’ involvement with the Arts Center I would say that this organization has impacted my life tremendously and more than any other place I have ever been involved with. Most of those years were spent as a board member, teacher, and student; participating in fundraising, operations, making and teaching art. “As a potter, I have met and been privileged to work with world famous ceramists through my experiences with workshops, classes, and trips with the Arts Center. I have built the Historic Train Station (run by the Arts Center) into one of the largest and well known Clay /Ceramic Centers in the United States; bringing in the top people in their fields and offering residency programs to the best and brightest of our young emerging artists. “Through my friendship with Dale Chihuly I was able to get a collection of his work for a permanent exhibit in St. Petersburg owned and operated by the Arts Center; furthering our position in the glass world while making the Arts Center more sustainable into the future.”
