BY BARBARA M. TOBIAS –
Mena Art Gallery will have its annual Artists’ Garage Sale during January 2018. You will find work exclusively by local artists in all media, but that is just the beginning: it is also a time when artists bring in art supplies. It gives the artist a chance to clear out unused supplies and gives the rest of us an opportunity to pick up supplies to try something new at very little expense.
If you are an artist who has decided to switch from oils to watercolors (or watercolors to oils, for that matter), you can find a market here and clear up your studio space at the same time. If you have always wanted to try a new medium, here’s your chance to do that without straining the budget. Or if you just want to try your hand at creating artwork, chances are that you can find the supplies you need to start here.
Don’t quite know what to do with those supplies yet? Bring them to the Tuesday Art Day at the gallery. Artists of all skill levels come and go between 11 am and 2 pm, each working on whatever project they prefer and all willing to help beginners learn.
Entries for the show should be brought to the gallery between 10 am and 4 pm on Tuesday, January 2. You can find entry forms and more information at www.MenaArtGallery.org or you can call the gallery at 479-394-3880 during regular gallery hours: 11 am to 2 pm Tuesdays and 10 am to 3 pm Wednesdays through Saturdays.
