Event Description

The Marion Heritage Center's eighteenth annual Art by Your Friends and Neighbors art show.  This year‘s exhibit features over 60 works of art by area artists - mostly Marion residents.  Included are drawings and photography, ceramics, watercolor, oil and pastel renderings.  In announcing the event, exhibit chairman, Jay Kacena, said that that last year’s event, which attracted over 700 visitors, confirmed the fact that "not only are there a lot of talented people in our town, there is a strong interest by others who enjoy seeing what they can do."  Many of the works are offered for sale. 

A special display, dubbed "Repeat, Repeat and Repeat", features six interpretations of the same subject, painted by six different members of the Creative Artists Group along with the photograph on which the work is based.

As in the past,  admittance to the exhibit is FREE due to the sponsorship of Hills Bank and Trust Company.  Visitors are invited to vote for their favorite entry and cash prizes will be awarded for the three most popular artists when the show closes on Saturday, June 1, 2019.
