It’s my love of art and artists in this community that has me curating monthly art exhibits at BREWS in Eureka Springs. It’s been a showcase for my work and numerous talented people, some showing for the first time.
The current show, “Women’s Work,” features the art of 17 local women. It combines seasoned pros like Mary Springer, Cynthia Kresse, Jana Robison, Carol Saari and Barbara Kennedy with women who have recently found their artistic voices. It is this diversity of talent that makes it an exciting show, and another I’m proud of.
There are no galleries in town that have the luxury of putting on exhibits for their featured artists or group shows where the art is allowed to stand alone. With wall space at a premium, a gallery cannot survive here without having to hang floor to ceiling.
While BREWS is far from the perfect gallery venue, it does showcase our myriad of talent quite well. The art on the walls has room to breathe and people enjoy viewing the work over a cappuccino or craft beer with friends.
My goal is to support art, the artists in our tiny community, and to continue promoting our town as a true arts destination.
I’m passionate about the months ahead at BREWS and have plans for future, larger exhibits at The Space, with all artists welcome to participate.
There is room for all, with the exception of anyone who thinks they are above hanging their precious work in a coffee house/bar. Please check your ego at the door.
Women’s Work will be up at Brews the remainder of the month with an “Outsider” art exhibit up next for all of July.
