May Festival of the Arts in Eureka Springs, AR

May Festival of the ArtsMay is Festival of the Arts in Eureka Springs!

 If you like art, you’ll like May in Eureka Springs. Events which include gallery exhibits, art receptions, concerts, a gathering of famous authors, and the North Main FamFest are part of the May Festival of the Arts.  Eureka Springs has been named a “Top Twenty-Five Arts Destination” by American Style Magazine. Artists of all types call this area home and enjoy sharing their talent.

 There are several month-long exhibits including “Art as Prayer” which is an exhibit of original work exploring art as a vehicle of spirituality. Many artists will be on hand for special exhibits and galleries hosting receptions.

 Every Saturday night in May, the downtown galleries put on a special show with some of their most popular artists. Artists will be in the gallery doing demonstrations and “meet and greets”. Most of the galleries also offer refreshments during the artist receptions.

 One of the favorite events of the month is the White Street Studio Walk on Friday, May 16. Historic White Street is the working address of several local artists who will welcome the public into homes and studios to view their latest works. They will be joined by more than forty guest artists from the Eureka Springs area, who will show weaving, watercolors, jewelry, oils, pottery, stained glass and much more.

 Books in Bloom Literary Festival is a free event held on the grounds of the Crescent Hotel. This year’s featured speakers include bestselling authors Kathy Reichs, Michael Shelden, Terry Brooks and Elizabeth Berg. Throughout the afternoon dozens of regional authors are also on hand reading from their work.

 Music is also part of the celebration. Free concerts in Basin Park, Ozarks Chorale Spring Concert and the John Two-Hawks Mothers Day Concert are just a few. Headlining at the Auditorium on May 23rd is premier American Singer & Songwriter Michael Martin Murphey.

 In case your idea of art is the four-wheeled kind, there are three car shows this month: The PT Cruiser Rally; the Camaro Fest and the Mustang Show and Parade, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary of the iconic American car.

 Please be sure to check out http://www.EurekaSprings.org and http://www.EurekaSpringsFestivalofthearts.com for a full schedule of events and have an Artrageous visit in Eureka Springs! Plan ahead by finding the best lodging in Eureka Springs, most within walking distance of all the Mayfest events, at Bed and Breakfast Inns of Eureka Springs.
