BY BARBARA M. TOBIAS –
Mena Art Gallery is holding its annual art competition for young artists in April. If you are between the ages of 5 and 17 (including 18 if still in high school), this one is for you! Older than that? Do you know of a young person who is a budding artist? Tell them about this one.
This competition includes home school, independent and others. You can find full details including entry forms on our website: www.MenaArtGallery.org.
Work should be brought to the gallery (607 Mena Street) on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you cannot get your work to the gallery on April 4, be sure to make an appointment PRIOR to the 4th to set up a date when you can bring it in. Just call the gallery at 479-394-3880.
There will be a reception on Saturday, April 8 from 1 to 3 p.m. with children and their parents invited. Awards will be presented at 2 p.m. McDonald’s of Mena and the Mena Title Company are again sponsoring this show, and we very much appreciate them making it possible.
Shows featuring professional artists such as the Art of the Heartland exhibit in the fall are great, but the young artists are our future. We are extremely happy to be able to help support them.
