Artists retreat well attended

Submitted Report

Ozark Regional Arts Council recently hosted its annual Women Artist Retreat at Stone Creek Ranch.

Twenty-three artists from four states and Canada stayed at the ranch for four days of artists’ workshops, friendship, fellowship and fun. Two Mountain Home High School students, sponsored by Integrity First Bank and First Security Bank, came each day to join in the activities. The first day of the retreat included a welcome lunch, demo by guest artists and instructors Bill and Gloria Garrison of Russellville and a slide presentation of tips and techniques of photography by Bill Barksdale of Cotter. Several artists and photographers met with Barksdale each morning at dawn for additional photo sessions.

Bill Garrison taught a two-day Plein Air oil workshop. Both days, Garrison critiqued paintings of individuals. Watercolor students learned watercolor techniques with Gloria Garrison.

A new activity this year was a friendship exchange of paintings. Each participant was to take an 8x10inch finished painting, unsigned and wrapped. The paintings were exchanged in a drawing. Other door prizes also were given by drawing.

Dana Johnson, Palette Art League president, and Deborah Lively, ORAC president, planned, shopped for and prepared the meals during the weekend. Integrity First Bank provided hamburgers, brats and potato salad for a Saturday night barbecue.

Retreat sponsors were invited to the barbecue to meet the artists and see the work produced during the weekend.

The next Women Artist Retreat is scheduled for Sept. 18-21, 2014. Instructors will be Sheila Parsons of Conway and Cindy Kopenhafer of Pleasant Hope, Mo. For more information, call Lively at 425-8291.
