A group of Fort Smith businesswomen is having a street fair in honor of the opening of Hidden Talent Fine Art Gallery & Restoration. 

The street fair will be from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday on the west end of 3rd Street. 

The gallery has more than 40 works of art in its space, and the street fair will feature more than 65 vendors, who include local artists and artisans, gallery owner Lorrie Staggs said. 

There will be a variety of vendors from food trucks to pop-up clothing stores. There will also be live music and live painting. Face painting will also be available. 

“I really want to get us out there to the community because that’s what we’re all about,” Staggs said. 

The event is free to the public. 

The gallery will have a reception from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

Olen & Co. Market and Designer Again are helping to sponsor the event and will have two fashion shows featuring their clothing, said Jessie Burrows with Olen & Co.
