Friday, November 8 - 4 to 9  and  Saturday, November 9 - 9 to 5

The Arts Council mission is to enhance and promote art in our community.

As you have no doubt heard, we will not be hosting the Sunflower Arts and Craft show this year due to a variety of reasons but, instead, chose to host

an indoor fall show.  We will, however, continue to host many of your

favorite artists and all booths have already been reserved.

FRIDAY'S SHOW will be open 4 to 9 and cater more to adults, serving Wine and Cheese, giving our shoppers an opportunity to interact

with local artists as they stroll through the art show.

DAC will HOST the Johnson County Development Services and an invitation has been extended to the De Soto High School district Art Students to be our guests and sell their artwork. By harnessing the energy and creativity of the youth, the arts can create a cycle that will ensure how the arts impact communities today and continue in the future.

A WIDE VARIETY OF MEDIA such as paintings, photography, jewelry, handcrafted wood and ceramics will be featured at the show among a plethora of other fine treasures.  This is the place to find that perfect art treasure for your home or business. 

SATURDAY'S SHOW hours will be 9 to 5.
