BY BARBARA M. TOBAIS –
One of the questions we’ve been asked is: Just what is an “Open Show” anyway? It is one where our local artists may enter work in any media and on any subject: painting, drawing, sculpture, pen and ink, pastel, watercolor, oils, acrylic, collage—you get the picture. And there is one coming up to start 2015 with an opening reception from 1 to 3 pm on Saturday, January 3. If you can’t make the opening, do plan to come by and see the work during the month of January: regular gallery hours are from 11 am to 2 pm on Tuesdays and 10 am to 3 pm Wednesdays through Fridays.
If you are an artist and would like to have a place to display and sell your work, please check our website: www.MenaArtGallery.org. Click on “Open” under “Exhibits” on the left-hand menu. There you will find a link to the entry form which gives all the rules and requirements. You can print it, fill out the form, and be all ready on December 31 (from 10 am to 4 pm) when you should bring your work to the gallery. If you have any questions, call the gallery at 479-394-3880.
Meanwhile, we would like to wish a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you. If you are going out of town this holiday season, we wish you dry roads, sunshine, and a safe return.
