Following the inaugural art exhibit in February 2017, Art From Within (AFW) was formed to continue developing the initiative after there was a great deal of interest expressed. Highlighting an individual's talents instead of focusing on their mistakes is the core of what we strive to do. Since we are new, our program is focused around the next exhibit on Monday, May 7 6 p.m. at WNMU's Miller Library. We hope to expand the program to include bringing in teachers that can educate how to create a variety of artistic media, professionals to teach the artists the business side of logistics when selling and promoting their art, and connect participants with community projects that help to beautify our towns in Grant County. These are some of the ideas we discuss and if you have ideas or wish to get involved, please join us during our monthly meetings on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 2:15 p.m. at 214 N Black St., Silver City.
