Local Flair Art Gallery
It was a gorgeous spring afternoon, but the beauty contained in the Local Flair Art Gallery was also a sight to behold. Opened in February of this year by Christina Drake, Local Flair is an elegant venue for Siloam Springs artists to show and sell their artwork. There were numerous artists represented, like the well-known Charles Peer and Todd Williams. Some of my favorite pieces were by Eileen Dineley Baatz and Joel Armstrong. It was an amazing experience to see such a wealth of talent represented by our town. Christina has been a long-time supporter of the arts in our community, as well as an advocate for the downtown's renaissance. I am thrilled to see her realize her dream of opening an art gallery, and it is a wonderful opportunity for artists and art lovers alike.
