Ouachita Artists Gallery and Studio is bursting with pride at the accomplishments of its first student member, 12-year-old Abry McClure, who won Best in Show at this year’s Montgomery County Fair for her oil painting of the old outhouse at Pine Ridge. Abry has studied with Ouachita Artists since she was 9 years old, and has exhibited a passion for her art unusual in someone so young, continuously expanding and refining her already-considerable skills. She markets her work on eBay and Facebook, as well as local shows such as the Amity Trade Days, and of course in Ouachita Artists Gallery. Abry is the daughter of Marla and Brian McClure of Mt. Ida.
