Art Organizations to Host Afternoon Reception

Mar. 29—The Ada Arts Council and Ada Artists Association will host a closing reception at noon tomorrow for their annual Ada Artists Exhibit show at the Chokmasi Gallery, 201 N. Broadway in Ada.

Doors open at 11:30 a.m.; youth awards will be presented at 12:30 p.m. and adult awards will be announced at 1:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The exhibit features artists of all ages in the community, with over 100 works in media ranging from oil painting to textiles to three-dimensional art assemblage. Awards will be presented for outstanding artwork in both youth and adult categories.

In 2023 the Ada Arts Council and Ada Artists Association collaborated to combine their annual art shows into one large exhibit. Members of both organizations displayed their works collectively. The partnership continued in the same way this year when the exhibit opened on Feb. 23.

In addition to the art, local food trucks Poe Prepping and Mendoza's Tacos will be selling lunch outside the venue from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Local band Conflict of Interest will play a set in the parking lot following the reception.

Event sponsors for the Ada Artist Exhibit include the Thompson Agency, Ada Arts & Crafts, Viking Confections and SnOasis. The gallery space is provided by the Chickasaw Nation.
