The Midway Art Association has been serving artists in the Heber Valley and surrounding area since the early 2000s. One of the great benefits of being a member is the opportunity to display one’s work in the Midway Gallery, located in the Town Hall building adjacent to the Midway Must Haves souvenir shop. Seven artists are given a section of wall space on which they can display their paintings for a two-month period. These seven artists are then responsible for being available when the gallery is open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm.
The seven artists for the months of August and September will be available for an artist meet and greet reception on August 5th from 5-8 pm. Please stop by and view the work of these artists. All art is offered for sale to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
