About the event
October 6-28, 2023
The Post-It Note: 3”x3” Showreturns to the gallery for the fourth 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 during the month of October. Opening gallery night and reception will be Friday, October 6, 6-9 p.m. Both viewing of the exhibit and attending the reception are free and open to the public. The Vintage Paris Coffee kiosk will also be on hand for opening night. Again this year, Early Access, 5-6 p.m., is available for $10.
This miniature show will boast an eclectic mix of mini masterpieces. “Each year area artists push their boundaries to bring something new and exciting to this show,” SMAC President Tenille Blair-Neff said, “to up the standards and creativity of the year prior.” There should be something for every taste, created with different mediums, styles and substrates—from a variety of papers, wood panels and mini canvases, some even on Post-It Notes. “You can be assured since this is in October, there will be a lot of Halloween inspired art, too,” Neff added.
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. “And we are making it better this year with Early Access, allowing you first pick of all the amazing art.” 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.
In addition, each month during their exhibits, SMAC highlights one of the many local non-profit organizations that serves the area. This month SMAC is drawing attention to Faith Community Health, a Christian faith-based charitable clinic offering income-based health services in Branson.
