Trumbull Fine Arts Council Names New Officers

WARREN, Ohio – The Fine Arts Council of Trumbull County has selected James Shuttic and Jeff Goodman as its new president and vice president, the group announced Wednesday.

With the appointments, the council is planning to “transition into a larger role within the community” and bring more opportunities to area artists, according to the announcement.

Shuttic helped start the Warren Arts Center two years ago with council executive director Adam Gregory and will bring some of the ideas to the Fine Arts Council, he said in a statement.

“After two years of progress, those same ideas and principles have evolved and transitioned into the Fine Arts Council,” he said. “With my recent appointment as president of the board, having Adam as the executive director, and a strong board, I feel we’ll be able to have an even larger impact within the community, and be able to reach an even larger number of artists.”

Added Goodman, “I am very optimistic of the new partnerships that have been formed within this organization. It will be a very positive step for moving forward and reaching the newly set goals of the Fine Arts Council.”

Established in 1971, the Fine Arts Council of Trumbull County coordinates art and cultural events across the county to “improve the quality of life in Trumbull County by fostering the arts.”
