5/23 – Artfest at Jane’s

On May 25th, 2023, the NSB Art Community from Artists Workshop, The Hub on Canal, and Janes Art Center rose to the occasion to help families displaced in 2023 by Hurricanes Ian and Nicole.

With pooled efforts, they donated their artistic creations to Smyrna Cares to help those families get back into their homes. Over 70 pieces were sold at this fabulous event held at Jane’s Art Center with proceeds going to our local hurricane victims.
