The art show will be held at the South Padre Island Convention Centre and will be open July 26 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and July 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Several art leagues are involved in the show. Also involved in the effort are the Willacy County Art League and the Laguna Madre Art League.

Admission is $3 per person and is good for two days.
