The Community Worship Center (CWC) on South Market Street in historic, downtown Alton, Missouri, will host an 11 Point Productions event, The Arts in A-Town, on Saturday, December 10, 2022, from noon to 7:00 PM. Stop by at your leisure or join us for the reception to enjoy and support the arts.
Featured artists of The Arts in A-Town were selected for their appreciation and love of Ozarks life, as well as, their deep roots in Oregon county. The artists are Barbara Williams, Karen Crews Bridges, and Tammy Curtis.
Barbara Williams is a retired art educator best known for her paintings and photographs of Rock buildings of the Ozarks. As a young girl, she was inspired to practice art by her fifth-grade teacher at Couch School. Much of her work is focused on her family and early life in Oregon county.
Karen Crews Bridges
Karen Crews Bridges grew up learning the love of art from her mother in their rural Oregon county home. She and her husband, Doug have a hobby farm named Dolly Brook Ranch. Her paintings and photographs are inspired, in large part, by animals of all kinds: pets, livestock, and wildlife, including wild horses.
Tammy Curtis, an Ozarks native, enjoys collecting natural and organic objects to incorporate into giftable and wearable art. Her jewelry is unique and intended to shock, wow, and inspire. Nature is her canvas.
There will be a reception to meet the featured artists at 2:00 PM on December 10th, with hors d’oeuvres provided by Court Square Café.
This Ozark’s Art Exhibit is free and open to the public. Appropriate attire is “Oregon County Casual.” Rubber boots are optional. Laurel Johnson will be playing background music on the piano. The sponsors are 11 Point Productions and Court Square Cafe.
