36th Annual Midwest Gather of the Artists


A variety of artist set up their artwork at Carthage's Memorial Hall for the 36th Annual Midwest Gathering of the Artists. 

Years ago a few local artist begin putting their work on display to sell for a living. Now works from 32 artists fill the hall.  

The event started on Friday with a welcome from the city's mayor along with an auction. The weekend events invited the public to view the artwork and the opportunity to purchase pieces. 

Some of the participants are returning while newcomers say they enjoyed their first experience. 

"I had a fantastic time this has been a good experience for me I just moved from Virginia because I'm getting married so it's wonderful. I'm actually doing the art show with my fiance so it's very special," said David Libby.

Some of the returning artists have attended for more than 30 years.
