CALS Launching Saturdays at the Galleries

The weekends are for CALS and exploring the amazing variety of artisans that Arkansas has to offer. CALS is hosting “Saturdays at the Galleries,” a series of artist demonstrations at the CALS Galleries & Bookstore at Library Square. This free public event will be held each Saturday from May 28 through August 27 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is an opportunity for visitors to meet local artists as they demonstrate their skills and discuss their works. Each Saturday will feature a different artisan, with specialties such as painting, glass work, jewelry making, and even pickling.
