CARTHAGE --- More than 30 painters and sculptors presented their work at the 36th Annual Midwest Gathering of the Artists. The event is a way for artists to connect with each other. Founders of the program say the gathering also helps promote artwork from near and far that wouldn't have otherwise been seen.
"Pennsylvania, Texas, and other places. They get exposed and the people get to see what art is somewhere else when they come in here," says Gathering of the Artists Founder Bob Tommey.
The Midwest Gathering of the Artists takes place in Carthage every September
