BY BARBARA M. TOBIAS –
It’s that time of year again! The annual Christmas Show and Sale at Mena Art Gallery will open on Thursday, November 5, during regular gallery hours: 10 am to 3 pm.
You will find unique items from stocking stuffers to that special piece that will make someone’s eye light up on Christmas morning. There will be paintings, drawings, photographs, sculpture, jewelry, pottery, and almost anything you can imagine in the art field. Most of the prices will be between $10 and $50, although there will be a few “luxury” items as well.
This show opens just before the annual Ouachita Art Celebration (OAC) on Saturday, November 7th. This is the time when you can look over everything while the selection is greatest; if you can come back in on the 7th, between 10 am and 4 pm for OAC when there will certainly be lots of artists demonstrating and selling their work, you will meet many of the artists whose work is being displayed in the gallery.
