               West Plains Arts Alliance members, the West Plains Council on the Arts (WPCA) and the Harlin Museum of West Plains (Harlin), will bring renowned artist Spencer Meagher to town for a three-day watercolor workshop. The workshop will be held 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily, November 11, 12, and 13, 2021, in the Hathcock Gallery at the Harlin, 405 Worcester Ave. in West Plains.

               WPCA Coordinator Janey Hale says, “Spencer Meager is a versatile artist in both subject matter and media. His paintings depict scenes from everyday life that create a sense of time and place for the viewer. With any of his chosen media Spencer is able to capture with color and value the essential elements of his subjects.”

Spencer Meagher first discovered his love for art as a young child. He found he was able to express himself through drawing and painting. He refined his skills over many decades with practice and dedication. As an adult, he has attended many workshops to gain a better understanding of his craft. Spencer now paints full time and travels all over the country attending competitions and shows, as well as teaching workshops. Spencer is a Plein Air and studio artist who works in watercolor, oil and acrylic. When he is not traveling, he works out of his studio in Mt. Vernon, IL.

Meagher’s work has taken top awards in art competitions around the country and has been exhibited in many notable galleries. His paintings have been featured in publications such as Southwest Art, Plein Air Magazine, and Plein Air Today; and mentioned in numerous online articles. Meagher has studied with renowned artists Alvaro Castagnet, Graham Berry, John P. Lasater IV, Joseph Fettingis, Lon Brauer, M. Shawn Cornell, and Sterling Edwards.

Spencer Meagher’s artist statement: “Deep within my spirit lies a need to express myself that can only be realized through my art. My paintings are an enhanced glimpse into how I view the world around me. I tend to avoid the details and let the color and value tell the story.”

Total cost for the three-day workshop is $300, payable at time of registration. The registration form and supplies list are available to download from the website at or you can call 417-293-2325 to request a copy be mailed to you.
