May 11, 2013 - Eureka Springs artist, Carol Dickie, exemplifies the theme for this month's gallery stroll, Painters in Paradise. In Carol's words, "As a mixed watermedia landscape artist who loves color, there's hardly a better place for inspiration. To capture the light, I use watercolor, gouache, acrylic, casein, charcoal and pastel in any and all combinations. I'm always trying different things to be as accurate to my perceptions about nature and the changing light and seasons as possible." Meet Carol and see her exquisite paintings from 1-4 and again from 6-9 p.m.

May 18, 2013 - Randal Thompson has lived in Eureka Springs for more than 30 years. And he's been recording the beauty of our area through his photography for most of that time. When you see Randal's art captured in prints on both paper and canvas, you can be assured that he's had his hand in the entire process, from the shooting to the printing. See how he has memorialized Eureka Springs and meet him from 1-4 and again from 6-9 p.m.

May 25, 2013 - Meet the Starbirds! Ken Starbird, ceramic artist, and his wife, Sandy Wythawai Starbird, fabric artist, have become an integral part of the art scene in Eureka Springs. Ken's sculptural pieces are often mistaken for pieces of coral from the depths of the sea. He is a master of texture and design, having both taught and produced ceramic art for almost 60 years. Sandy has been creating fabric "dolls" for almost 30 years. In her own words, "The images speak of that which is hidden behind the mask. They touch the childlike primal part of us which remembers that imagination and magic are closely related." To see why it's said that they are "making magic in the woods", meet Ken and Sandy between 1-4 and again from 6-9 p.m.
