A 40-year retrospective of paintings and prints by Carole Katchen on exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Hot Springs ranges from "early woodblock prints of dancers and musicians to Nigerian etchings, mid-career bar scenes and recent chefs," Katchen says in a press release.

Katchen is one of the most well-known artists in Arkansas though she's lived here only since 1995. Her work is included in the collections of the Heifer International Foundation, the Rockefeller Cancer Institute, Baptist Health Center and the personal collection of Bill and Hillary Clinton. She has published 14 art instruction books and was a contributing editor to The Artist’s Magazine for 14 years. She has won the Golden Mentor Award from the International Association of Pastel Societies, an Outstanding Working Woman award from the U.S. Department of Labor and the Master Pastelist award of the Pastel Society of America.

“The main focus of my art has always been people. I love to watch them and try to capture how they interact with each other. Being an artist has allowed me to paint people all over the world, from South America to Africa. It has been fascinating to see their differences and their similarities.”

MOCA is in the former Ozark Bathhouse at 425 Central Ave. Hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 3 on Sunday. Admission is $5. An opening reception is set for 5:30-7:30 p.m. Sept. 13.

P.S. Thanks to Jay King for noting my Freudian slip in previous headline (MOMA for MOCA!).
