"There is no one more deserving of this honor. Zeek has spent the last 30 years in NWA painting and perfecting his craft, mastering the meticulous technique of dry point watercolor.
"There is no mistaking a Zeek Taylor painting -- his unique style of mixing vibrant colors with intricate pattern make his signature florals and monkeys jump off the canvas.
"Zeek has also been integral in the promotion and development of Eureka Springs and NWA as an artist destination.
"Our art ambassador certainly warrants COW recognition."
