Scott Grimes: of Union Bridge has been chosen as the Carroll County Arts Council's Volunteer of the Year by the county Department of Recreation and Parks. He has helped in the renovation of the council's new center in Westminster and has designed several brochures and the council's logo, which appears on all its publications.

Organization's comments: "Scott does all the signage and graphics, creates backdrops for exhibits and illustrations for our newsletter," said Hilary Pierce, executive director of the council. "He is an incredible illustrator and graphics person who donates a lot of hours and is always on hand for us. We can call him to do spot art. As soon as he gets the newsletter [proofs] he starts drawing. I am so glad to hear he has received recognition."

Volunteer's comments: "It is nice to be acknowledged," said Mr. Grimes. "Working with the Arts Council came so easily to me. I wanted to help design its new package and help members redo the council's image. I think the new logo helps people pick up on the council and its events more readily. I wanted the brochures to be more unified, too. The renovation was a lot of work but an achievement for everyone involved."

Background: Mr. Grimes, 29 and single, said he does "just about everything" in his job at Woodland Signs in Westminster. He has studied art "everywhere," including Catonsville Community College, Towson State University and the Maryland Institute College of Art. He has had several positions in the graphics art field. In his spare time, he enjoys the fine arts, especially painting and sculpture.
