King watercolors to be exhibited at ASUMH

Thursday, February 20, 2003

Local artist Roger King will exhibit 18 works at Arkansas State University Mountain Home Feb. 24-28.

The exhibition will be held in the Gaston Lobby located on the second floor of Roller Hall. King will present a Gallery Talk Feb. 27 at 12:15 p.m. in the Gaston Lobby. The public is invited to join students and ASU Mountain Home faculty and staff for all activities.

King, a native of West Virginia, graduated from West Virginia University with a major in fine arts. He later graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh where he studied interior design.

After graduation he and his wife moved to Phoenix where he soon was involved again in the arts. He was a member of the National Society of Interior Design, American Interior Designers, Arizona Watercolor Association and the Arizona Artists Guild (all juried organizations). King was invited to participate in the first international tour of American Watercolorists under the sponsorship of the U.S. Department of Interior.

King has demonstrated watercolor on television in Huntington, W. Va., and Phoenix, led seminars in the deserts of Arizona and New Mexico and was a private teacher in Scottsdale, Ariz., prior to his retirement to the Ozarks.
