Art at the OPOMAC opening reception Friday

National juried art show to be hosted from June 21 through July 31 at the OPOMAC

For eight years artists from around the nation have submitted works to be displayed at the Old Post Office Museum and Art Center show Art at the OPOMAC, and Friday the annual show will once again be hosted at the art center.

The Art at the OPOMAC is a juried art show which will be on display Friday, June 21 through Wednesday, July 31 at the OPOMAC. A public reception for the show will be held June 21 at the OPOMAC with the show’s judge Randy Meador and the artists showing their work.

Meador, of Saint Jo, is a Texas western artist who specializes in oil and watercolor paintings. Artists submitted their pieces online and Meador went through the selection process of finding ones suitable for the show. The artists who are chosen then have to mail, or hand-deliver their pieces to the OPOMAC.

“What sets this one (show) apart is that it is nationwide, so normally we try to go as local as we can and we try to stay in Texas with most of our artists, but this one we want to bring in a lot of variety,” director of the OPOMAC Lynsey Browning said. “It is not just western art either, it is made up of a little bit of everything, so we want to bring that in to just bring a little culture in that is not Texas.”
