A resolution worth keeping

If you haven’t decided on a New Year’s resolution yet, an easy one would be to go see the Museum of Eureka Springs Art.

Artists have flocked to the city for more than a century. The museum’s oldest pieces are photographs from the 1890s.

The museum’s collection includes works from prominent artists from then to the present day. These include iconic graphic artist Max Elbo, emotive painter and former Scooby Doo animator Drew Gentle, fashion designer Mark Hughes – not to mention members of the 1970s art collective known variously as the Eureka Brotherhood, the Eureka Co-Op, and the Great Eureka Forgery.

So many other talented artists are represented, among them Ken Addington, Bill Farnum, Mirriam McKinnie, John Rankine, Denise Ryan, and John Willer.

Some artists whose works are on exhibit will make an appearance in my upcoming book, Welcome to Eureka Springs: The I-Sh*t-You-Not-History of America’s Quirkiest Town. Artists like Louis and Elsie Freund, Glenn Gant, Gary Eagan, Jim Nelson, Bettina De Vescovi, Eleanor Lux, Mary Springer, Doug Stowe, and Zeek Taylor.

Things don’t get boring with paintings, sculpture, pottery, woodworking, jewelry, textiles, and more.

The museum opened its doors shortly before Christmas. Until its grand opening this spring, you can only visit on Saturday afternoons. Heck, you could resolve to go to the grand opening, if you wanted to nail it down a bit more.

I’m not even the resolving type, but I think I can handle that one.

Don't miss out!
