Gretchen and steve lotz continue to inspire, challenge and find mystery in each other after nearly five decades of an aesthetically inspired partnership. the intertwined worlds they have fashioned find form in the organically entangled artworks they create. steve’s paintings are inspired by the colors of the deep sea – watery greens, misty blues, rich coral purples and spiny reds. Gretchen too finds inspiration in the creatures of the waters and the birds of the skies.

Ensuring a Bright Future for An Appalachian Summer Festival... Become a Festival Supporter! artistic excellence, accessibility, and audience engagement make an appalachian summer festival unique. because the festival is committed to affordable ticket prices, revenues from ticket sales cover only about 43% of its annual costs. private support from festival donors must fill the gap in order to ensure a continued commitment to both quality programming and affordable ticket pricing.

Ways You Can Help

• Attend festival events and share the magic of appsummer with friends and family. • Become a festival supporter! for ways to give, visit appsummer.org/support. enjoy donor benefits that include complimentary festival tickets and vip parking privileges. • Consider making an endowment gift. providing long-term financial security for the festival means creating a strong endowment. We need festival patrons to step forward by making an outright gift, or a planned gift, to ensure continuation of programming our audiences value. Gifts may be specifically targeted to programming you wish to support, and can also carry the names of the donor(s), or be designated in honor of or in memory of a friend or family member.
