The Ozarks have been home to many artists, including painters, woodworkers, and craftsmen. Through the years, artists have found inspiration in the natural wonders of the Ozarks through new and old art forms. Some artists were born here while others came from near and far. Oftentimes, they had no formal training, just a creative spirit. Many of the artworks exhibited here honor the beauty of the Ozarks and celebrate traditional crafts.
