Carrie is an original member of the International Arts Mega Crew and has been volunteering with art and community projects for more than 6 years. During that time, she has worked with a number of artists and art supporters. Her personal network is made up of people from a diverse array of social, cultural, geographical, professional, and economic backgrounds. This diverse network supports the arts in various ways; some build it, some finance it, and some lend their personal and professional skills to projects. Many more want to help, but often are not sure how. The goal of AeolusARTS is to act as agent bringing these people and organizations together so that we can engage, network, and collaborate within in the arts community and beyond.
AeolusARTS LLC is not looking to compete with other arts organizations, but rather create partnerships which ultimately increase the paid opportunities for artists as well as make more large scale art accessible to the public and enrich our urban environments.
Our partnerships include:
Reno Art Works – “an organization devoted to providing professional work space, gallery, and classroom space to artists of all mediums and styles.

The principles of Reno Art Works are working artists and professionals who are involved in a number of large scale events, community projects and city initiatives.
The Generator – “an inclusive art space in greater Reno, Nevada, for anyone who wants to make art and be part of a creative community.” A 34,000 sq/ft warehouse dedicated to both the fine and industrial arts, learning and building skills, and community involvement.
