Wednesday, April 19, 2017

The Creative Arts board met recently to plan upcoming events for the year.

Fran Crosthwait will lead a Paint 'n Pour on Thursday, April 20, at 6:p.m. The acrylic painting will be a serene landscape. To attend, call Crosthwait at 417-858-0219. It is a beautiful scene and she says is an easy one to learn.

Crosthwait will be the Featured Artist in May. Her collection of work will be shown beginning Thursday, May 11, with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. that evening. She will also lead a Paint 'n Pour on Thursday, May 18, beginning at 6 p.m. Plan to see this talented artist's beautiful art, ranging from pastels to oils and acrylics. 

World renowned sculpture and glass artist, Dale Chihuly, will have indoor and outdoor installations of his art at the Crystal Bridges Museum, beginning in June. The Creative Arts board is planning a field trip to Bentonville, Ark., to see his display, so keep in touch for more information on the trip. Others are welcome to join.

Creative Arts welcomes new members and anyone who has an interest in learning about art, would like to try a new medium, or has something to share with others interested in art.

Creative Arts of Shell Knob is open to the public on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m to 4 p.m., and has working artists on site.
