Another opportunity that I have come across recently is the Art Cooperative in Searcy, Second Saturday Studio. I recently posted about the Studio that opened up a couple of weeks ago. Two Arkansas artists, Kelly VanHook and Micah Holden, who live in central Arkansas, have organized this space to give Arkansas artists a place to show and sell their art. As artists, it is difficult to find places that are available for artists. So I was very excited to hear about this space. Normally they are open only once a month, but they are going to be open this Saturday, because of a local festival at the college in town. But the big Grand Opening event will be next weekend, April 10th, from 9 am to 5 pm. I will be attending this event and look forward to meeting all of the artists that display at the Studio. If you are in central Arkansas this Saturday, April 3rd, or next Saturday, April 10th, come by the Studio to check out the super Arkansas artwork! They are even starting a gift registry!
Wish me luck in these events, so that I will be able to move toward my goal to become a full time artist by next year!
Good luck in your artistic endeavors! I hope you will stick around to hear more about mine.
