The Heartland Art Club exists to promote and encourage the creation of quality representational fine art through education, exhibits, and engagement. Established by a group of artists and supporters in St. Louis, Missouri, and now over 100 members strong, Heartland Art Club, a 501(c)3 organization, seeks to elevate representational art, its disciplines, and its history.

Heartland’s inaugural exhibit, “A Survey of Excellence,” includes works by 25 artists and opens August 23, 2019, 6 to 9 p.m., at the club’s office and exhibit space, the former OA Gallery (Kirkwood, MO).

The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular gallery hours through September. The artists participating in the event were invited by a panel of the club’s board members. The participants were selected for displaying consistent excellence in creating quality representational art. Participating artists live or have spent a significant portion of their lives in the middle of the US. In addition to Joseph Orr, other prominent artists showing work are Heartland board members Bryan Haynes and John Whytock, Scott Christensen and Ali Cavanaugh.
