Solo landscape show opens Memorial Day weekend

Thursday, May 23, 2019

“Solitude,” a solo show of landscape paintings by Arkansas artist Carol Dickie, is open Memorial Day weekend on Beaver Lake near Eureka Springs. The show is hosted by the Beaver Lake Office of Century 21 at 321 Mundell Road and runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, May 24, through Sunday, May 26, daily; the reception is from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, May 25.

Dickie lives and works from a studio on Beaver Lake, as she has for 15 years. Much of her mixed water-media work is local, though she also loves painting the west, particularly New Mexico, Colorado and the Big Bend region of Texas.

Her work has garnered numerous awards and has been included in juried national art shows in both New York City and Los Angeles and featured in 2012 at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art’s Museum Store.

“In solitude with nature, which is a different thing entirely from loneliness, the chaos of daily life subsides,” she said. “Listening to the birds or the wind through the trees centers and quiets me. I paint from there.”

Included in the show and sale are about 50 paintings, many of them new, in which water, sky, trees and lush colors intertwine.
