Cantrell Gallery and Mid-Southern Watercolor Exhibit
















“A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing.” -----William Dobell

Greetings Artists and Patrons of ArkansasArtists.com

Sunday July 14th Helen, Cindy and Clarke at Cantrell Gallery featured the Mid-Southern Watercolor Artists Event. The event started with a reception for the artists and friends with a wonderfully delightful spread of wine, cheese, fruit and other delisious finger foods. Everyone who attended had a wonderful time and I got to visit with Arkansas Artists: Marlene Gremillion, Diane Ziemski, Terry and Debi Bean, Duane Hada and many others. Most of the artists present were entrants and winners of the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion Association art calendar competition that was announced several weeks ago. ArkansasArtists.com play an important roll in helping organize, create and run the competition along with Ginger Beebe and many other wonderful volunteers from the Governor’s Mansion Association.

Helen tells me that the watercolorist’s exhibit will be displayed for several months so please make it a point to drop by Cantrell Gallery to see all the wonderful art created by some of the most talented artists from our state. Also, join me in congratulating all the artists that participated in the gallery exhibit and I promise you will be captivated by all the exquisite art, not to mention that Helen, Cindy and Clarke are delightful conversationalists so you will not be disappointed when you stop in to view their collection. Cantrell Gallery will soon be one ArkansasArtists.com’s coveted sponsors and we want to welcome and thank them for being part of Arkansas’s best website that showcases Artists from the great State of Arkansas.
