Artifacts Gallery, in their new locations at 37 Spring St (upstairs), will host a MEET THE ARTIST event: 6:00 – 8:00 during the Saturday Gallery Stroll, May 19th, featuring fine artist, Diane Harvey.
Eureka Springs artist, Diane Harvey will be demonstrating demonstrating her oil painting techniques and showing new works.
Diana originally intended a path in archeology and art history, studying for two years in the Prado Museum in Madrid, then receiving a degree in archeology back in the States. On the way to a life in museum work, she discovered the bliss of creating art. Encouraged by her artist husband, Bob Z. Harvey, she plunged into studio art work. Early success cemented her determination to become an artist, and thirty productive years have affirmed it. Her lyric images reflect her varied interests in myth, dream, poetry, history, and art. A meditation on the deep mystery of beauty is how she thinks of her work. Still an avid traveler and devotee of art museums. Diana is delighted with having Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art nearby to raise the art spirit. Exclusively a painter now, intaglio printmaking was Diana’s first focus, and her etchings are in thousands of private, public, and corporate collections in this country, Europe, and Asia.
