Art in Opera seeks artists
The Eureka Spring Opera Guild is again offering a unique opportunity for all area artists to submit two or three-dimensional art works reflecting this season's operas. Opera in the Ozarks summer opera festival will begin June 19 with performances of Tosca, Carmen and Don Giovanni.
Selected works will be displayed at the performances, and at events at the Crescent Hotel, Best Western Inn of the Ozarks Convention Center and the Arend Performing Arts Center in Bentonville. The art works will be for sale, with 10 percent of the purchase price going to support the aspiring singers scholarship fund and the submitting artist receiving the remainder.
The 2009 season of Opera in the Ozarks Art in Opera realized the sale of eight of the submitted works. Local artist Carol Saari is the chairperson for this year's Art in Opera. The unique venue at Opera in the Ozarks provides a "ready, willing and able" source of art collectors.
