BELLA VISTA, Ark. (KFTA) – The Bella Vista Arts Council is honoring an award winning painter with the title “June Artist of the Month”.

JoeRay Kelley has held executive positions in many national and international art societies.

His work has been well accepted throughout the U.S. and rewarded in many regional, national and international juried art shows and exhibitions, including the Biennale Internazionalle Dell’Arte Contemporanea in Florence, Italy.

Born in the Midwest, Kelley loves the four seasons, nature and the majestic results of the changing weather systems. He became serious about fine-art painting after a 40-year career in meteorology.

He is a self-taught painter using acrylic and oil to create a large diversity of subjects. After much trial and error, he is not afraid to try new styles and techniques. He tries to paint every day if possible in his studio.

Kelley’s work will be on display in June at the Artist Retreat Center in Bella Vista.
