This month’s Art Awareness program at the gallery (607 Mena Street, 5:30 pm on Tuesday, February 16) will be presented by Rick Chrisman. His topic will be Marketing Three-Dimensional and Craft Art.
Rick, as many of you know, spent many years in fine craft creation and marketing. He and Donna Chrisman created beautiful wooden boxes, both traditional Shaker boxes and modern designs using a variety of ways to showcase the beauty of the wood. His company name was Revolutionary Designs.
In addition to marketing his work, Rick has been Chair of the Board of Mena Art Gallery for the last several years, and he was the moving force behind the Ouachita Studio Tours as well as the current Ouachita Arts Celebration annual event.
You do not have to be a member of the gallery to attend these events; admission is free.
