Big News at the Palette Art League!!!
Inside the Palette Art League Gallery, we have two art studios available for rent.
What better place could there be to get away from it all, relax and create your Art,
surrounded by the art of so many other fine artists in the area.
If you are tired of trying to make room for your art in your home.
If you are tired of constant interruptions at home while trying to work, it is time to
treat yourself to your own art studio space.

The 7th Annual Plein Air on the White River event continues to grow each year with
participation of many noted Plein air artists locally from surrounding states. Competing
artists will be highlighted at the opening of the Cotter Trout Festival during a Quick Draw
competition held on Friday, May 1, during an evening of “Art, Music and Riverside
Garden Party”, at the Cotter Big Spring Pavilion, Cotter, Arkansas. The finale of the
event will be on Saturday, May 2, at the Douglas Reynolds Library, Mountain Home
Arkansas. The Public is invited to the awards presentation, art show and sale from 1:00
pm to 3:00 p.m. reception, awards presentation and sale of artwork during this time.
Plein Air on the White River will begin on April 27 thru April 28 with a workshop given
juror Larry Degraff at the Cotter VFW, Cotter Arkansas. Degraff was born in the Missouri
Ozarks, Larry showed impressive artistic talent at a young age and developed his skills
towards a career in commercial illustration. He eventually built a client list that included
Warner Brothers, Walt Disney Company and the major pro sports leagues. With this
expertise he was offered a position as an artist with Hallmark Cards. In the midst of tight
deadlines and constant revisions, Larry missed the joy of creating that he remembered
from childhood and began to paint for himself. He found inspiration in the Impressionists
and the Hudson River School. Along with studio work he committed to painting "en plein
air" which he found both a fast track for creative growth and a good excuse to be
outdoors. For personal growth he has had the opportunity to study under modern
masters Matt Smith, Jeff Legg and others. Encouraged by early success, in 2011 Larry
"quit his day job" to become a full time painter and has since won many regional and
national awards. Larry and his wife Gina live in Estes Park, Colorado.
The White River Artists would like to extend an invitation to all artists and the community
to the 7th Annual Plein Air on the White River event. Artists will be painting familiar
scenes in the surrounding area so watch for the artists during the Cotter Trout Festival,
in your local parks, streets, White River and beautiful landscapes that the Ozarks offer.
The artists will all come together Saturday, May 2, 1:00 to 3:00pm at the Douglas
Reynolds Library, Mountain Home, Arkansas for awards, art show and sale. For
complete details, contact White River Artists on facebook or email
firstname.lastname@example.org or 870-424-1051. White River Artists is a 501c3 non- profit
