And in keeping with that tradition, artists from SoArts will feature their interpretations of love as the exhibition “Heart” celebrates its opening from 5-7 p.m. Saturday at the Garfield Park Arts Center, 2450 Shelby St.
There will be plenty of light refreshments and lots of love to go around, of course.
Among those displaying their work are Duane King and Jim Anderson.
King, a prominent Southside artist for many years, is the director of SoArts, which meets the first Thursday of each month at the center.
Anderson, who owns Art from the Spirit, has exhibited his work at Garfield Park, Hoaglin’s To Go Cafe, Henry’s Cafe and Holliday Park.
A couple of the exhibitors, Claire Dillehay and Katharine Han, teach in Perry Township Schools. Others are professionals in business and health care, but all are qualified artists with a message of heart and love to express through their works.
The exhibit may be viewed for free through March 28 from 3-9 p.m. Tuesdays-Thursdays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
Fridays and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays. Many of the works will be for sale.
Membership in SoArts is free to anyone who is interested in art.
