Southwest Artist 2023 Photography Show Announced

The Mena Art Gallery/Southwest Artists 2023 Photography Show will be bigger than ever this year, with cash prizes totaling well over $1,000. 

According to Lisa Keeling, Mena Art Gallery/Southwest Artists Executive Director, the 2023 show will be bigger than ever as there will be an additional youth division (ages 14-18) added for 2023. 

“The name of this division is ‘Bikes in Our Lives’ and the focus will be, of course, on bikes!” noted Keeling. 

“We want to give young adult photographers a chance to showcase their creativity by showing us how bikes affect their lives,” she added. 

Keeling noted that more and more young adults are discovering cycling and that mountain bikes and street bikes are becoming more popular than ever in Mena and Ouachita Mountains. 

Photo submissions for the 2023 Mena Art Gallery/Southwest Artists Photography Show are due February 18 and the photos will be exhibited at the gallery show  February 22 through March 15. 

The exciting awards reception will be held February 25 at which time winners will receive their prizes.
