Hollister—The Post-It Note: 3”x3” Show returns to the gallery for the second year at the Southern Missouri Arts Connection (SMAC) Art Center, at 7 Downing Street, Hollister. This event is not only a show to see great art from many regional and local artists, but also a fundraiser to support SMAC’s efforts to keep the arts alive and well within the Hollister/Branson community. The exhibit will run for the entire month of October. Opening gallery night and reception will be Friday, October 1, 6-9 p.m. Other times to view the show will be on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 12:30-5 p.m. Appointments for viewing at other times can be arranged by calling the center at (417) 598-1568.
This miniature show will boast an eclectic mix of mini masterpieces. “Last year we had more than 400 pieces of art from 40 artists,” SMAC President Tenille Blair-Neff said. “We won’t know the exact number participating until next week, but I’m expecting similar participation this year.” There should be something for every taste, created with a different mediums, styles and substrates—from a variety of papers, wood panels and mini canvases, some even on Post-It Notes.
Each piece will be sold for only $5. It is a rare opportunity to purchase a piece of artwork from a favorite local or regional artist for less than a happy meal.
“The first night is special,” Ms. Blair-Neff said. “There is electricity and excitement in the air as people rush to snatch their favorites off the walls before someone else does.” She further explained that once an item is purchased the buyer takes it home that night. There is no waiting until the end of the month, like at other shows. And all pieces are sold on a first-come basis. Even with art flying out the door the first night, there will still be plenty of art yet to be seen and had throughout the month.
Southern Missouri Arts Connection (SMAC), a 501C3 non-profit local center of creativity, art education, innovation, and community partnership, strives to improve the quality of life in southern Missouri by connecting individuals with the arts, for the benefit of all.All Things Branson Sponsor:
