Story and photo by Joyce Hartmann

Members of the North Central Arkansas Artist League hung a new exhibit at the Ozark Health Medical Center on Monday, Jan. 13. The theme of the exhibit, titled Imagination, includes visions created by the artist and communicated to the viewer through paint and color. Paintings include sea serpents, monsters, butterflies, fish, visions, colorful abstracts, landscapes and flowers. Even realistic subjects depend upon imagination both by the artist and the viewer to convert a three-dimensional subject into two dimensions.

Artists showing work in the exhibit include Mary Shelton, Carolyn Goettsch, Pamma Henderson, Jan Cobb, Julie Caswell, Connie Hood, Lea Berry, Doris Sexson, Jeanne Homuth, Kathleen Hadley, Dorothy Hendrickson, Ruby Krimm, Diana Foote, Joan Bland Joyce Hartmann, Choctaw.

The public may view the free exhibit on the second floor of the hospital in the hallways adjacent to the cafeteria, near the nursing home entrance. The exhibit is open during from 8 a.m. through 9 p.m. through April 8. For further information about the exhibit or the Artist League, contact Joyce Hartmann at 745-6615.
