New Art Exhibit Displayed at Ozark Health Medical Center

A new art exhibit has been hung at Ozark Health Medical Center to cheer the staff and patients as they walk the halls. About 30 paintings by seven members of the North Central Arkansas Artist League are displayed in two exhibits: one upstairs near the cafeteria, and one downstairs in the Outpatient Wing. The exhibits are open to the public during regular hours, with all works available for purchase at the Gift Shop. A portion of each sale will go to the Hospital Auxiliary for their projects.

Many paintings are of local subjects such as Greers Ferry Lake and Little Red River scenes. Artists featured in this exhibit are Ellen Kelly, Charlotte Rierson, Kathleen Hadley, Jane Gortney, Ruth Thomas, all of Fairfield Bay, and Hospital Exhibit Coordinator Joyce Hartmann of Choctaw.

The theme of this quarterly exhibit is “Hello World, Goodbye Covid!” as we enter a new era of vaccines and a little more open world. When people go to view the exhibits, however, current CDC restrictions are still in place, including masks and temperature checks.

The NCA Artist League meets most Mondays to paint together at the Lions Club in Fairfield Bay, 365 Dave Creek Parkway. Programs, demos, and workshops as well as more plein air outings are planned for the summer. Contact President Alecs Long to join or for more information at 501 314 8066.
