Highlights from The 21st Great Little Art Show
By Tacha Reed
Most look back on their 21st year as a time of exploration and growth, and the same can be said for much of the artwork in this year’s collection for The Great Little Art Show. Many returning artists have presented works that provide evidence of a period of great exploration and development. We’ve also had a number of artists bravely join us for the first time, with several sharing works that may challenge your expectations for a rural community arts exhibit.
The 21st Great Little Art Show continues weekends in May from 10am until 5pm at the Avon River Heritage Museum in Newport Landing/Avondale. avonriverheritage.com
