Art by Your Friends & Neighbors
May 19, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Marion Heritage Center to Show to Art The Marion Heritage Center will open its doors for the sevenenth annual Art by Your Friends and Neighbors art show from 10AM to 5PM on Saturday, May 19. This year‘s exhibit will feature over 60 works of art by area artists – mostly Marion residents. Included will be drawings and photography, sculptures, watercolor, oil and pastel renderings. In announcing the event, exhibit chairman, Jay Kacena, said that that last year’s event, which attracted over 700 visitors, confirmed the fact that “not only are there a lot of talented people in our town, there is a strong interest by others who enjoy seeing what they can do.” Many of the works will be offered for sale. A special feature will be added to this year’s exhibit. Dubbed “Repeat, Repeat, Repeat”, six interpretations of the same subject, painted by six members of the Creative Artists Group will be displayed along with the photograph on which the work is based. As in the past, opening day admittance to the exhibit will be FREE due to the sponsorship of Hills Bank and Trust Company and an anonymous donor. Visitors will be invited to vote for their favorite entry and cash prizes will be awarded for the three most popular artists when the show closes on July 28, 2018.
