Local Flair

Watching Mr. Morgan's class enjoying their morning reminded me of my recent gallery experience...

A few weeks back while browsing in the Downtown shops, I purchased a note card at Local Flair Art Gallery.  On the front of the card is an original watercolor portraying one of my favorite local places-The Cafe on Broadway.
A couple of days after my shopping trip, I was given a gift.  It's another original watercolor note card painted by Victor Parkerson; this one is of the Gazebo in the park.
Rather than use them to send a note to a friend, I've decided to frame my cards and I'm still searching for the perfect frame (maybe I'll find it at Four Corners).
I think these little pieces of art are the perfect thing to send to friends who don't live Siloam Springs but have fond memories of time spent here--jot a note, pop it in the included envelope, "stick" on a stamp, and drop it in the mail box!  So easy!
Local Flair has a wide variety of art created by local artists available for purchase; from note cards to framed canvases there is something for everyone!
PS: The paintings by local artist John P. Lasater IV are my very favorites. One of these days, I'd love to have one on my wall at home.

  1. Thanks Karyn! I'm a big fan of the blog. Thanks for keeping us up to date on the goings-on. And by the way, I'd love to hook you up with a painting. (wink, wink) -- John Lasater
