ABOUT THE OWNERS

As owners of Appalachian Creativity Center, Ann M. Nicholson and Shirley J. Rosenberger are actively involved in spreading the arts in the community of Connellsville, PA as well as the surrounding areas. In addition to owning the Art Center, they are also owners of a community theatre company, Project Talent Theatre Workshops. Project Talent trains one of the few stiltwalking groups in Pennsylvania. The owners believe art, in all its forms, is important to building a strong community, especially when it comes to the children and young adults. The arts allow for individual expression and creativity. Both businesses focus on allowing the artist to showcase their talent and to inspire visitors to the community.
