Art on the Border

After a two-year absence due to the Covid-19 virus, ART ON THE BORDER returns with our annual art show and sale to be held July 22nd and 23rd, 2022. We are excited about the new 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 2022 will go to benefit ArTs at Bost, Good Samaritan Clinic, Gregory Kistler Treatment Center, and Donald W. Reynolds Cancer Support House. These are all amazing organization that serve Fort Smith well.

We will be located at the new ACHE Research Institute Health & Wellness Center! (Formerly the Golden Living Campus) 1000 Fianna Way, Fort Smith
