“Art’s Alive focuses on all the local fine art talent we have based right here in our area. It’s a fun, fine arts party. And as a non profit art based business in downtown Sharon, I will continue to do whatever it takes to see the arts and culture center and other new art driven start ups succeed,” said Alane Jewel, Art’s Alive event planner and artist. “The more people we can help get downtown, and through their doors to see the beautiful buildings restored and appreciate variety of the performance, musical and fine art experiences they are offering… the better off we all are as working artists in this town.”
