The space at Foxley's to showcase our work is spacious with excellent lighting. The founders are amazing caring people whose purpose is to help the arts community as much as they can. Become a member! You'll be glad that you did!."
"I feel like it was destiny for me to find this amazing arts association in Appleton! Being new to the area, I was hoping to find an organization that supports local arts and artists. Shortly after I started looking, I connected with NEWAA and now I have my art on display at Foxley's Gallery, I am able to connect with other local artists, and my website will be up and running soon! I am so thankful for NEWAA and look forward to an exciting future here in the Fox Cities!"
