Gallery Main Street in Downtown Tyler has announced it is now accepting entries for its upcoming “Historic Local Landmark” exhibit.
Tyler has many beautiful structures that are iconic to the community’s identity. Currently, 119 of these structures are designated as local historic landmarks, both natural and man-made. Artists are encouraged to honor and interpret these sites for this exhibit. The top 12 pieces from the show will be used to create a 2017 Historic Landmark calendar. For inspiration, please visit www.TylerHistoricPreservation.com to see Tyler's local landmark sites.

This link will lead artists to a page that provides all of the information they need, as well as links to the actual entry service site. Artists have until Friday, April 8 to submit their work.
