Hot Springs -- The public is invited to an opening reception featuring the Traditional Art Guild’s neighboring organization, Three Rivers Art Guild from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 15 in the terminal building at Hot Springs Memorial Field, 525 Airport Road. The exhibit will remain on display until mid-April.
Comprised mostly by residents of Mount Ida and Glenwood with others from the Hot Springs area, the Three Rivers Art Guild formed in 1963 to promote local art.
One of the contributing artists for this display is Don Watson. A native of Glenwood, he started painting in 2001 after reading the book, The Artist Way by Julia Cameron. Watson works in themes and series. They include a Hand of God series and themes such as Arkansas landscapes, flowers and abstract figures. Don Watson is the current Vice President of the Three Rivers Guild, which meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month at Glenwood City Hall. Everyone is welcome to attend.
TAG sponsors a new exhibit at the airport each month, and meets at 10 a.m. on the second Tuesday of the month from May through September at the Garland County Library. Guests may attend once prior to joining. For membership information, contact President Doug Jones 501-915-0994 or traditionalartguild.com .
