ART from the ashes (AFTA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to support communities devastated by natural disaster through the creation of art. In the spirit of "Support. Inspire. Create. Renew" artists create one-of-a-kind works of art utilizing materials reclaimed from disaster site locations, which are then exhibited in a benefit exhibition. Proceeds support the affected community to aid in their recovery process. In the wake of devastation and destruction, these works of art symbolize one's ability to renew, rebuild and persevere. AFTA's inspiration stems from the desire to help heal and reconnect communities as they face challenges and hardships in the aftermath of natural disaster. The efforts of ART from the ashes are supported by contributing artists, volunteers, sponsors and donations.
The Spring 2012 benefit to support the restoration of Bastrop County's Lost Pines Region, marked ART from the ashes' sixth benefit exhibition since its inception in 2007.
