Ouachita Expressions Coming Up!

BY BARBARA M. TOBIAS

Ouachita Expressions has been Mena Art Gallery’s premier art exhibit and competition for over 30 years, displaying primarily the work of local artists (although the competition is not restricted to Arkansans).  We have seen the level of expertise of our artists grow over this long period, and are looking forward to another stellar year.

We will be accepting work in almost any media, both two and three-dimensional.  For complete rules and information about the show please see our website:  www.MenaArtGallery.org.  Click on “Ouachita Expressions” in the left-hand menu.  From there you can download a copy of the entry form.  Or stop by the gallery anytime during regular hours (10 am to 3 pm Wednesday through Saturday and 11 am to 2 pm Tuesday) and pick up a copy.  There will be a volunteer on hand who can probably answer any questions you may have.  Good time to see the current exhibit also:  “Textiles–Anything Fiber.”

Check-in for artists’ work will be Wednesday, September 4, from 10 am to 4 pm.

We welcome the work of both professional and amateur artists.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call the gallery at 479-394-3880.
