ACWC is an organization of artists for artists. Board Trustee Sarah Bowen and former Board President Shanta Lee Gander have collaborated to plan a series of forums at 118 Elliott St. for the spring of 2018: Nourishing the Inner Artist: Conversations on Art and Creativity. The series plans to provide a menu of five programs that will give individuals the opportunity to consider foundational questions as they relate to creative expression in the studio, the community, and the world.
