Artist Reception in Fairfield Bay

Indian Rock Village will host a reception Sunday August 23, 2:00 to 4:00 P.M.  at their facility in Fairfield Bay honoring local artists Ruby Krimm and Rosalie Musial.  These two talented artists’ work is currently on display there through the end of October.

Ruby is an active and long-time member of the North Central Arkansas Artists League having served as President, Treasurer and current Vice-President.  She studied oil and watercolor painting in the Philippines, Washington, D.C., California, Illinois, and Missouri before retiring to Fairfield Bay.  Watercolor has become her favorite medium and she has studied with Sheila Parsons, Bill and Gloria  Garrison, and Richard Stevens.  Her career before retiring included owning her own gallery and framing business “The Art Barn” in Greenwood, Missouri. She still mats and frames her own paintings.   Her work is also on display at the NCAAL Gallery and its’ other venues

Rosalie Musial, a resident of Greenbrier, has been a member of NCAAL for the past two years.  She has been painting for over 30 years.  Her current focus is pastels but she has extensive experience in oils and mixed media.  Like Ruby, some of her inspiration comes from her travels around the world.  She has lived in Guam, England and Norway and visited Japan, the Philippines and Cayman islands.  Her favorite subjects are landscapes, children and animals.  She has won numerous awards for her work throughout Arkansas.  As well as being a member of NCAAL, Rosalie also belongs to the Conway League of Artists.  Presently her work can be seen at Riciano’s Gallery in Hot Springs,  the Arkansas Education Television Network in Conway, the Faulkner County Library in Conway, and Joyce Burns Art Studio and Gallery in Clinton.

The public is invited to the reception.  For further information on these artists and their works contact IRV coordinator Connie Hood at (501)884-3283.
