Welcome to the November, 2021 installment of The Artist Spotlight: 

Erin McCarthy-Sculptor

 

Erin McCarthy was raised in Medway and went on to work and study in Europe. From her Massachusetts studio, she creates realistic figures and portraits using classical sculpting approaches.  These sublime pieces convey a quality beyond the carefully mastered form and surface.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Medway Cultural Council is to support and cultivate the arts in Medway.  To accomplish this, we offer grant funding, program development, and educational opportunities.  Our goal is to provide our community with a wide range of cultural experiences, including art, music, performance, crafts, and traditions from around the world.  We support and encourage local artists and a shared sense of community through cultural appreciation. 

 

What We Do

The Medway Cultural Council (MedCC) supports public programs that promote access, education, diversity and excellence in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences; directly affect the residents of Medway; achieve the greatest community benefit; and cultivate the arts through participation and appreciation. The MedCC receives its annual budget from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, as well as from the Town of Medway.  For the fiscal year 2021, MedCC received $6800 for its state allocation and $5000 from the Town of Medway.

Non-discrimination Statement: 

The Medway Cultural Council does not discriminate against applicants, individuals or programs based on age, ability, ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, nationality, geographic origin, immigration, military, or socio-economic status. The Medway Cultural Council will not knowingly promote or sponsor artists, vendors, or entities that are known to discriminate on the basis of these attributes. Additionally, we do not necessarily share the views, beliefs or opinions of those we sponsor or post. 

Equity Statement: 

The Medway Cultural Council seeks to cultivate a culture of equity and inclusion, including the promotion of diversity in the arts, through our programs, information, granting, and through the organizations we support. We are committed to supporting programming that promotes excellence, education, diversity and inclusion in the arts, humanities, and sciences to foster a rich cultural life in our community.
