The South Arkansas Arts Center is pleased to host this year’s Membership Showcase on exhibit in the Merkle Gallery from December 1 through December 17. No matter what style of art appeals to you, chances are there is something to please the eye during SAAC’s highly anticipated annual exhibition. SAAC hosted an artist’s reception on Thursday, December 2, from 5:00-6:30 p.m. in the Merkle Gallery. This exhibit is sponsored by William P. Cook & Associates, PLLC, with the exhibit and reception free and open to the public.
“SAAC is all about our wonderful members, who are creating original work every day inside our walls and in their own studios,” says executive director Laura Allen. “Bringing so many different talented artists’ work together in our galleries is a beautiful way to celebrate these individuals, and their diverse points of view.”
The members of SAAC have once again filled the galleries with a myriad of works created in assemblage, acrylics, charcoal, glasswork, graphite, oils, pastel, photography, sculpture, and watercolor. Every year the exhibition brings the talent of SAAC’s members to the forefront and allows them to display and sell their work in a non-competitive environment. This year’s show boasts 55 pieces from 35 artists.
