About Friend Of The Artist

Friend of The Artist is a print publication dedicated to showcasing the work of emerging and established artists from around the world. There is a copious amount of engaging and intelligent artwork. Because of an invisible gap between the academy and the art world, there is a limit to the opportunities artists have. The print and digital publications allow FOA to exhibit artists’ work in a broader context. They have the advantage of sparking worldwide conversations through our artist interviews. FOA is about engaging in meaningful dialogue around art in print.

Since 1978, the council has made its home in the historic Mills Pond House. Occupied by the prosperous Mills family (early settlers of the Town of Smithtown) until 1976. This area is a rare survival of an agricultural hamlet once common on Long Iland. William Wickham Mills inherited the family land and began to construct the Mills Pond House in 1838. This Greek Revival style home is the earliest documented architect-designed house in the area.

The Mills Pond Gallery strives to promote an active process of exploration involving creativity and the arts, providing inspiring and enjoyable opportunities for visitors to explore different points of view, challenge preconceptions and prejudices, and foster critical thinking. They hope that the public will relate the art exhibited to their own life experiences, creating new links and understanding. Dedicated to showcasing the artistic development and achievements of the region and nation, exhibitions provide diverse art experiences for individuals. They reach local communities through classes, special events, and community outreach programs. Focusing on active and collaborative learning through the medium of art, they bring arts and people together to discover, enjoy, and understand the nation’s rich and diverse artistic heritage.
