Shown in photo is Stain Glass Artist, Karen Gehl. Karen Gehl is one of our artists that are preparing her glass art for the next NCA Art Exhibit. She has beautiful artwork currently on display in the Art Gallery. Karen designs and fabricates with light and colored decorative art glass here in Fairfield Bay. Art in all forms have been constant interests of Karen’s. She has enjoyed drawing, painting and producing pottery on a wheel. It was not until after retiring that creating with glass came to be the art of choice. Primarily self- taught, the challenges of glass provide many avenues for creative thinking. Karen is proud to be an active member of the Arkansas art community and enjoys the friendship of fellow artists. She is a member of the North Central Arkansas Art Gallery here in Fairfield Bay and the Arkansas Craft Guild & Gallery in Mountain View.
