Latinos Unidos, an art exhibit featuring Latino artisans residing in the United States, will be on exhibit at the Landmark Building, 201 Market Street in Hot Springs, from June 7-Aug. 30. The gallery is open Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-4 p.m. with extended hours until 8 p.m. for Gallery Walk on the first Friday of each month.

The gallery is also open by appointment on Saturdays and Sundays. Contact Donna Dunnahoe at 501-545-0534 or hsu.landmark@yahoo.com.

An opening reception is planned June 7 during Gallery Walk. At 6 p.m., Will Hogg, director of The Latino Art Project in North Little Rock, will provide a guided tour with the attending artists.

Latinos Unidos showcases the rich and beautiful history of the Latino culture through stunning visual art. The works are diverse in style and subject, but all carry the common tie of the beauty of the Latino heritage. The artists are immigrants or descendants of immigrants from Latino countries.
