Mena Art Gallery, in the Arts District of Downtown Mena, is currently hosting its sixth annual Art of the Heartland National Show. There are 45 works on display from all over the United States. The show is family friendly, and there is no charge to view this show, which runs through the end of October.
Lynn Greenwade, the Executive Director at Mena Art Gallery, said, “I invite the public to come and enjoy the current show, which runs through the end of October. We gave out cash awards of $7,000 in this competition, which resulted in our having some of the best artists in the United States enter their work. This is a great way to encourage a love of art in your children. Bring them in and let them vote for their choice of the best work. Being asked to pick a favorite will get them, and you, involved in the vivid colors and variety of subjects. Mena is fortunate to have this quality of work available to enjoy.”
The Gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Private showings can be arranged. Masks are required to enter the Gallery, please.
You can also view the show at southwestartists.org. Go to Photo Galleries, Juried Competitions, Art of the Heartland and choose this year’s show. All work is for sale. Contact Greenwade, for more information at 479-394-3880 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
