About Us

For the past two years, a group Parrish people from the recently-formed Parrish Arts Council has been working on establishing the Parrish Arts Council to further the arts in the Parrish community. Future projects may include art shows, music performances, trips and exhibits.


A recent survey in the Parrish Village News showed that our community wanted craft shows, possibly a photographic competition, music perfomances and other art opportunities.

The mission of the Parrish Arts Council is to utilize the arts as a tool to

re-establish the identity of the Parrish community, to preserve its history and to jump start the revitalization of its economy..

Our Mission

  • 63.16 % of those responding wanted a crafts exhibit.
  • 48.25 % of those responding asked for a symphony or musical performance in Parrish.
  • 34.50% of those responding want an art competition.

"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious - the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science."

Albert Einstein

"If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you:  I am here to live out loud."

Emile Zola

"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time."

Thomas Merton


"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life."

Pablo Picasso

"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."

Edgar Degas

"A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul."

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
