Art on the Border 2023
ART ON THE BORDER returns with our annual art show and sale to be held July 21st and 22nd, 2023. We are excited about the location of the event in the newly renovated and spacious event center at the ACHE Research Institute Health & Wellness Center.
Art patrons and charity supporters will find a host of mediums to admire and purchase. They include oils, pastels, acrylics, watercolor, fiber, hand-blown glass, jewelry, sculptures, gourds, digitally enhanced photographs, wood turning and baskets, high quality prints as well as originals. Art on the Border grew from 14 artists in 2014 to 60+ in 2019. We are expecting 70+ this year. That list is located under Featured Artists on our website.
The Classic Charitable Foundation and Art on the Border event is put on to raise money to support charities in the greater Fort Smith area. All of the proceeds raised at the event in 2023 will go to benefit Riverview Hope Campus, The CALL in Crawford and Sebastian Counties, Family Ministries Arkansas Children's Homes , and the Good Samaritan Clinic. These are all amazing organization that serve Fort Smith well.
We will be located at the ACHE Research Institute Health & Wellness Center! (Formerly the Golden Living Campus) 1000 Fianna Way, Fort Smith
