The Marion Heritage Center ART Show Goes On Line
Several weeks ago 40 + local artists works for our 20th Annual ART by Yours Friends and Neighbors show is open to view.
Visit the 2021 Friends and Neighbors Art Show by going to our website. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite!  Our sponsor, Hills Bank and Trust Company, provides $75 in cash awards to each of the three top favorites chosen by you.

The Marion Heritage Center ART Show Goes On Line 2021 marks TWENTY years that “Art by Your Friends and Neighbors” has been exhibited at the Marion Heritage Center. Over the years, the artistic creations of hundreds of local artists, as well as the work of many former citizen/painters and artisans have adorned the walls and display cases of our gallery. Artists like Maria Gerstman, George Glass and Emma Safely of Springville, to name a few. Last year, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, on the very day it was to open, the exhibit was closed and moved to the internet. This year, damage caused by the August derecho, yet to be repaired, has dictated the same solution: Art by Your Friends and Neighbors 2021 can be seen on line beginning April 7th. As in the past, some of the art in this show is for sale. In addition, visitors are invited to cast a vote for their favorite painting, photograph or other entry. The top three vote-getters will earn a $75 prize from the exhibit sponsor, Hills Bank and Trust Company. Although voting to identify the top three most popular ends at 5 pm on July 30th, the art will be available for viewing until the next exhibit opens. Please help recognize our local artists by casting your vote.
