Leaders of Searcy Art Gallery
A treasure? Yes, Searcy Art Gallery is not just an art gallery that displays art. It is really a historic treasure. It is called The Black House, named for the Black family who built and lived there for so long. Yesterday, June 29, 2019, the house was dressed up for company like it would have been done in the past.
A beautifully dressed table with special prepared foods is shown partially in the photo above. A reception was held to feature "Small Works on Paper " touring exhibit and was held from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Everything was lovely with fresh flowers all over the house. Debbie Higgs, shown above in the photo, worked hard to get all things just right.
If you missed it, don't despair. Plan to visit 300 E Race sometime soon. You will experience how things "used to be." Antiques everywhere! Placed in rooms that show us history, beautiful art work, a gift shop, and if you like gardening, you must tour the grounds. Howard Johnson, shown above, is President and Debbie Higgs is Director of the gallery and house.
I was impressed! You will be impressed also!
