EVENTS UPDATE: We’ve made the difficult decision to postpone Gideon Freudmann’s CelloBop, which was scheduled for Oct. 5, and the Remember When Variety Show on Oct. 23 due to COVID concerns. Thanks for your understanding, patience, and continued support as we navigate another challenging season with the safety of our community as our top priority.
Thank you to our 2020-2021 Season Patrons!

The “Art at the Inn” Art Show is an event displaying talented local artists' work from a variety of mediums. There will be many new faces and artwork that has not been exhibited before! Come enjoy fine art, food provided by Red Ember Pizza, Hangry Grill, and local wine sold by Cold Springs Winery. Live music will be provided by Michaela French and Lyle Evans.
This event is free to attend from 12-7 p.m. and open to all ages.
On display this year for the Guild’s Out of the Box Scholarship Fundraiser are original traditional and non-traditional wreaths of all kinds! A handful of local artists have donated their talents to decorate each wreath to be displayed for a silent auction. All proceeds raised during this auction will go towards providing scholarships for local high school students pursuing the art field. Over $15,000 in scholarships have been provided by this silent auction since 2006! Watch the Mountain Home Visual Arts Facebook page @VisualArtsMH, as the Silent Auction bidding begins online October 10th, runs online through Oct 29th, and then will transition to live (in-person only bidding) at the event Nov. 6th.
The Visual Arts Guild works to provide networking and display opportunities, and venues to local artists. They believe in assisting all artists, whether they are an emerging artist, supporter of the arts or a professional artist.
