April will bring not only Spring blooms to Mena but the work of many talented young artists as well. There will be work on display at Mena Art Gallery, 607 Mena Street, in a wide variety of media: drawing, painting, and three-dimensional artwork divided into three categories. Awards will be presented for ages 5 through 8, 9 through 13, and 14 through 17.
In addition to Best of Show, there will be awards in each category for first, second, third, and honorable mention. There are also special awards from McDonald’s and one honoring the memory of Lucy Mulcahy who started our Children’s Classes many years ago. There will also be a People’s Choice Award where all attendees at the reception may vote for their favorite.
The reception will be Saturday, March 31, from 1 to 3 pm with awards presented about 2 pm. The entire show will be on display the month of April during regular gallery hours of 11 am to 2 pm Tuesdays and 10 am to 3 pm Wednesdays through Saturdays.
Mena is fortunate to have many talented young artists—come and support them. They are our future.
