While typically judged by society as impaired, this organization advocates for these artists to be considered as equal, not other, within the visual art community by their unique perspectives and life experiences.

Timothy's work is thought-provoking and a visual language that is an approach to expression of form, space and color, referencing our natural world and its surroundings. "The ambiguity of my work is created on a subconscious level."
Work will be on display June 15 - August 31.

"The Wildwoods will be sharing songs from their newest album “Sweet Nostalgia” This is what Live on Hear Nebraska FM had to say about it.
“That Sweet Nostalgia is the third release for this young five-piece folk act is alone admirable, were it not for the effortless charm and youthful whimsy they bring to classic Americana. The arm-in-arm camaraderie of “Loose Threads” bops and sways like a Randy Newman tune. “My Friend” swells with countryside imagery and ornate instrumentation, aided by the production prowess of ARC’s Ben Brodin. “Bedford Street” is a good old-fashioned hoe-down. And no matter how tearful or worrisome things seem, the turn is always hopeful: trust is endless, love is everlasting, the strings are always in tune and the sun is always shining. Sweet Nostalgia, indeed.”
