This weekend, Sept. 30 from 10 to 4 and Oct. 1 Sunday from 10 to 2, come out to the Wild Ozark Studio & Gallery in Alpena, Arkansas to see artists working at art. I’ll be there on Saturday, but not on Sunday. The other artists will still be there working at art on Sunday, though.
Madison Woods (that’s me) makes her oil and watercolor paints from her local resources. Her paintings are reminiscent of the Old World with her earthy colors. Weekends at the studio has her either crushing rocks to make paint, or working on paintings. She’s always working at art in some way, and is happy to do little show-n-tell demonstrations about how she makes her paints or let visitors watch her paint.
Here’s a short video to show where she gets her rocks that make up the bulk of her pigments:
Heather Bell of Ice Bell Photography spends every spare minute she has working at her art from behind the camera or on the editing at the computer. She’d be happy to show and tell her process of getting that perfect shot, or tell you stories about her favorite photo shoots.
Karen Anderson of Coquette Creations is bringing her anvil and torch. When I say she’s an artist working at art, she’s really working up a sweat! You might find her outside on the front porch hammering away at copper to create her incredible statement pieces. She’s happy to demonstrate her process to visitors.
Judi Anderson of Judi Crafts is a wiz at crochet. Her designs are all straight out of her imagination – she doesn’t use a pattern! Yet somehow her critters and figures all look precisely as intended. Come watch her needles do their mysterious thing.
Artists Working at Art every weekend!
This weekend is the finale of the Welcoming Week NWA, but we’ll be here every weekend until the weather gets too cold to do our art. And every weekend we’ll be artists working at art, and you’re welcome to come by and watch, ask questions, and learn. Best of all, we’ve got a lot of inventory in a wide range of prices for you to shop! We’ve got you covered for your office and family gifting needs.
