The Artists of Arkansas.com began its life as The Eureka Springs Artists Registry (www.eurekaspringsartists.com). The registry was the vision of Eureka Springs resident, Steve Schmidt, back in 2002. He wanted to give the artists of Eureka a venue to showcase their talents and works. Hence the Registry was born. After many years of giving his time and energies to the creation and promotion of the arts through the website and local art shows, he had to move on, handing the reigns over to Zeek Taylor. After a period, Zeek resigned his position, although still active in the local art community. For most of its life, the website maintenance, coding and hosting has fallen to me, Larry Wishon.
Due to personal life changes, I have put this project to rest. We have had a good run, lasting 17 years. I believe through the work of Steve Schmidt, Zeek Taylor, and others, the site has brought the creative abilities of many of Eureka Springs' artists to the world.
Thanks to all for their cooperation and participation over the years,
