The public is invited to an opening reception featuring the works of Traditional Art Guild Artist Phyllis Anderson from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 16 in the terminal building at Hot Springs Memorial Field, 525 Airport Road. The exhibit will remain on display until mid-December.
Anderson is a retired teacher who lives in Mt. Ida with her husband David. Their daughter,
son-in-law and two granddaughters live near Fayetteville, Arkansas. When she retired after 39 years of teaching, she decided to rekindle her interest in painting. Anderson began taking painting lessons at National Park Community College. All of her paintings are inspired by photographs she has taken in Arkansas. Landscapes and old buildings are favorite subjects. She tries to emphasize the beauty and interest of her subjects by using brighter or even unusual colors, even painting on orange or red backgrounds.
TAG sponsors a new exhibit at the airport each month, and meets on the third Thursday of the month from September through May at the Garland County Library. For membership information, contact President Joanne Kunath, 501-262-2953 or traditionalartguild.com .
