Mena Art Gallery and Atwoods are teaming up to bring them to you. On Saturday, August 12, from 10 am to 2 pm, Mena Art Gallery representatives will be manning the stand in front of Atwoods. One dollar will bring you two hot dogs and a coke.
All proceeds will go to help cover operating expenses of Mena Art Gallery—utilities, insurance, telephone, and all the other things it takes to enable the folks at your local art gallery to bring you exhibits like Ouachita Expressions, which is on display now. Ouachita Expressions has been providing local artists a chance to compete for cash awards for over 20 years now.
Come pick up a couple of hot dogs for lunch and then go by the gallery at 607 Mena Street to see the talent and skill of our local artists displayed.
And our thanks go to Atwoods for supporting the gallery, as well as to all the volunteers who contribute their time and knowledge to make it possible to keep the doors open. We also appreciate all the local businesses who have contributed to the awards for this exhibit.
