Ava is busy hanging the Winter Art Show.

The Matthews Art Gallery has been stripped bare.  It’s feeling rather naked in here — for the moment.

On Wednesday, Jan. 7, the gallery began 4 days of registrations for the 36th Winter Art Show.

What’s new this year?
As has been reported, we are having the art show in our art gallery for the first time.  It has been up in the opera house theater for forever!  Because our theater is in high demand for many events–community theater, concerts, etc., we have had to push our Winter Art Show way back.  Last year it was in March!

Now, we are back in the winter season, as it should be.  Another added benefit is that the art gallery is the proper place for a fine art show.  The art show is now going to have room to be displayed AND have the proper lighting to both view and judge the artwork.  Finally, since we don’t have to compete for time in the theater, we are able to have the show hang a lot longer.

Dates to view show
Viewing starts Jan. 13 through Jan. 24.  Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  The AWARDS CEREMONY and RECEPTION is Wednesday, Jan. 14 at 6:00 p.m.  

We are getting some great work.
