Eureka Springs Winery is a prolific award winner

November 10th, 2009

A few years back Eureka Springs, Arkansas became the home of Keels Creek Winery and Art Gallery. Not only is their wine excellent, but the art they have at their location is also of high quality.

Recently Keels Creek Winery won the won a gold medal and Best of Show award at the 2009 Arkansas State Fair Commercial Wine Competition for their 2006 Chambourcin Their Vivant won a 1st place, gold medal in its category and their Sweet Spring won a bronze medal in its category at the same competition.

Those aren’t the only awards they have received. They have won Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals for a number of their wines. The next time you visit 5 Ojo Inn Bed and Breakfast plan on going to their winery to taste some of their wines and enjoy the art they have for sale. We think you’ll really enjoy yourselves. I know we have.

5th Annual Eureka Springs, AR Fall Art Show

November 6th, 2009

We love to visit the local galleries and artists studios to enjoy their creations. We really are lucky here in the Ozarks to have so many artists in one place. Did you know that Eureka Springs is listed as one of the top 25 art destinations?

To both view some of these artists work and even have a chance to buy some, you should plan on attending the 5th Annual Eureka Springs Fall Art Show presented by Arts Eureka. It will be at the Inn of the Ozarks Convention Center, Saturday, Nov. 28 from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 29, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. It’s just down the road from 5 Ojo Inn Bed and Breakfast.

This year’s show features extended hours, new exhibitors offering art for sale, and artist’s give-a-ways. All artwork is judged by a three-member panel that includes representatives from the University of Arkansas, the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and KY3 TV of Springfield, Missouri.

Cars as Art

May 26th, 2009

Think cars are just for driving? Not so in Eureka Springs, AR. This Memorial weekend we had an Art Car parade. These aren’t your typical painted show cars nor are they the same as those trucks painted on the CMT Trick My Truck reality show. No, these are actually works of art with imagination plus.

Checkout some of the cars in these pictures. Click the images for a bigger picture.

There are quite a few car parades in Eureka Springs and most of them drive the historic loop right by our place, 5 Ojo Inn Bed and Breakfast. It’s fun to getaway for a relaxing, romantic weekend and sit on our porches sipping a cool drink while watching the Mustangs, VWs (my son in-laws favorite), Antique cars (my favorite), PT Cruisers, Corvettes and once even old police cars. Come join us sometime!…..Richard
