Hosts an artist this May


Plein air painters from around the country are signing up at Eureka Springs School of Art (ESSA) for a new event celebrating the art of painting outdoors during May Festival of the Arts.

Town is likely to be crowded and ESSA is looking for hosts who can offer a room to an out-of-town painter during the Eureka Springs Plein Air Festival from May 22 – 26, either as a donation or for a nominal overnight fee. Hosts will not have to provide meals or transportation.

This is a great chance to meet an artist and join in May’s colorful atmosphere in a meaningful way. You will also be invited as a special guest to two ticketed receptions, the awards show and presentation at no cost.

If you can help, contact or phone (479) 253-5384. For complete information about the Plein Air Festival see
