The Hot Springs community is fortunate to have Hugh Dunnahoe as both a local artist and teacher. Emergent Arts is proud to have the opportunity to showcase his art and teaching this fall!
Hugh’s professional experience in illustration and graphic design has provided him a solid platform of communication from which to interpret his subjects, and a mastery of a wide variety of art media and styles. Currently working mostly in oils, his original paintings are boldly diverse in style. Hugh’s work is an exploration of relationships – our connection to the natural and urban landscapes we encounter, and to each other.
In September and October Emergent Arts is exhibiting Hugh’s work at the Garland County Library. For more information please contact the Garland County Library. Additionally, we are also excited to have Hugh working with Emergent Arts as the instructor for two classes beginning in October. Both classes are intended for high school students and adults.
