Eureka Springs Art Galleries

Eureka Springs for years has garnered the reputation of being an art destination.In fact according to American Style magazine, readers have ranked Eureka Springs in the top 25 Art Destinations in America. Amazing, but some what understandable. Why?  Because Eureka Springs is filled with talented artists and art galleries.  In fact many of the artist that live here in Eureka Springs have not only received local attention, but also nation wide attention.

All trips to Eureka Springs need to include art gallery strolls, each second Saturday evening starting in April, local galleries host open house and invite all to their gallery walk.  Meet and speak with local artist and gallery owners.Some of my favorites are Quick Silver, Lux Weavers Studios, 83 Springs Street, Gryphons Roost, The Art Colony  Eureka Thyme  Fusion Squared and Zarks Gallery.

If you are in town on February 12th, Zarks Gallery’s will host its 12th annual Big Glass Sale.  The sale features studios 2nds. from the Gartner-Blade Art Studio.  The make downs range from 20 to 50% off the retail price of many incredible pieces. I love this sale, I have picked up several beautiful items. The sale brings in collectors in from just about every where. This such a  great opportunity to purchase authentic art at great prices.For more information info@zarksgallery.com.

This is just one example of the many art events that take place here in Eureka Spring during the year.
If you attend also plan to visit Susan Morrison's gallery across the street. Susan is highly talented and has art work displayed through the world.At the end of the day consider a trip to Keels Creek Winery and Art Gallery. The gallery features local artist and their work as well as a working winery. This is worth the visit. If Art is your passion visit Eureka Springs during the month of May for the month long festival.

Plan to spend the end of your day at the Angel at Rose Hall, Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast for rest and pampering, breakfast at 9:00. set your alarm or we will give you a wake up call.
