Heritage, Heart & Arts is presenting a national art exhibition “Our Heritage through the Arts” starting with a reception on October 26th, 2019 from 2 to 4 p.m. The exhibition will be available for viewing until November 30th, 2019 at the 1894 Gallery located at 105 Olive Street, Texarkana, Arkansas
Awards totaling $2,500 will be presented including a $750 Mayor’s Award chosen by the Honorable Alan Brown and Honorable Bob Burggerman. Other judges include leaders in our community: an entrepreneur, educators, first responder and state representative. This will be one of the largest art shows in our area and is designed to encourage all of our community to have the opportunity to see a unique perspective of “Our Heritage Through the Arts.”
This exhibition features 61 artists from 18 different states in our great nation as far away as New York, California, Florida and Colorado with 124 creative pieces of art. These artists have each uniquely interpreted the theme “Our Heritage through the Arts” in various ways with a variety of mediums. We have works created with paints, collage, fabric and photography each presenting the artist’s connection or idea of “heritage.”
These Works widely and courageously display our culture of both past and present. Visual images comprised of the American Indian, Spanish American, African-American, Eastern Indian and even a Dutch Motif design. With a wide variety of styles from realism to contemporary this show has something for everyone of every heritage. A great visual experience along with historical learning opportunity is on display a must-see.
Art enthusiasts can be involved too – a “People’s Choice Award” will be presented at the end of the exhibition.
