“THE FORWARDIAN ARTS SOCIETY is a fellowship of people who share a desire to encourage, support, and love the experiences of creative individuals and groups as they go forward toward their dreams."


Announcement: As many of you know, Paul Adam Smeltz founded the fellowship for people who love the arts known as The Forwardian Arts Society on October 15th, 2001. Its core values of encouragement, support, and love remained a steadfast element in all the fellowship accomplished and attempted during the past 21 years in order to benefit the creative community and the general public alike. However, Paul feels it’s time to retire from his role in The Forwardian Arts Society and allow others to expand its ability to be a blessing to those who encounter it through their visions, insights, and abilities. Therefore, those who wish to provide leadership after Paul resigns on October 15th, 2022, are welcomed to send The Forwardian Arts Society an email at artlover@forwardianarts.org to share your desire to continue and expand upon the aspirations of the fellowship. We look forward to hearing from you.
