Eureka Springs Holiday Events 2014
The magic and romance of the Eureka Springs art mecca shines brilliantly during the mild Ozark holiday season.
Now through December Studio 62, located at 335 West Van Buren, hosts a holiday miniature painting show.
Eureka Thyme located at 19 Spring Street hosts “Holidays Gone to the Dogs!” Betty Johnson, well-known for her portraits of dogs — in particular her series called Old Masters Gone to the Dogs, with works including Bona Lisa and Gogh Spot Gogh– will be featured during the Eureka Springs Gallery Association Saturday Gallery Stroll on December 13 from 1 – 4 pm. Dogs are invited too.
From 3-6 p.m. on December 13, the Living Windows in Downtown Eureka Springs will be celebrated by many businesses. It features shop windows come to life with costumed characters.
Eureka Thyme will be visited by Santa Claus from 3-6 on December 13th, and children are encouraged to stop by and have a personal chat with him.
There’s a surprise or two as well as you make your way up to #2 Pine Street. Newly opened galleries, craft beer and gourmet coffees await. Brews located at #2 Pine Street hosts an Invitational Still Life Exhibit curated by photographer John Rankine. Many of the artists featured in the month long exhibit are part of Eureka Fine Art Gallery collective that recently re-located to the newest hotspot #2 Pine Street. They’ll have extended hours during the December 13th Gallery Stroll.
Practical Magic Art Supply and Norberta Philbrook Gallery, located at 34 N. Main, will also have extended holiday hours and an “everyday is an Open House” theme during the month of December. Be sure to stop by there for information on how to be a part of The Up Project, Eureka Springs newest large scale public space art installation set to debut during the May 2016 Festival of the Arts.
Once your Eureka holiday wraps up the glitter, it’s just a short wait for the upcoming Mardi Gras celebration. And by then we’re just a sleigh ride away from Spring.
