Aclin, Kay


Kay Aclin is a tried and true Arkansan, born in Hot Springs and residing in Fort Smith for the last thirty years. Northwest Arkansas proved a perfect setting she and her husband, Richard, to raise two daughters and two sons as well as for Richard to carry on a pediatric practice.

A busy practice made for many nights of painting. Exposure to art was always a certainty for Kay. It was what went on at home. Kay always had exposure of one sort or another, but sincere study with professionals began late for her. , after her family was raised. She has studied with such notables as Zoltan Zabo, Mary Ann Boysan, Tony Couch, Timothy Clark and Doug Walton.


Kay has developed a mode all her own. One judge recently described her paintings as "possessing humor, style and sophistication. There is a flair and a fresh contemporary approach to her subjects". That suits Kay just fine. She doesn't like to take herself too seriously and loves it when she looks up at one of her paintings and feels a smile, from within, hoping other viewers of her art have the same feeling.


Kay is a member of the Mid-South Watercolor Society, an exhibitor sponsored by the Museum of Women in the Arts, a member of "Who's Who in Women Artists", 2003, on the Arkansas Artist's Registry, a member of the Fort Smith Art Center as well as the Art and Education Center of Crawford County.


Her works are called "Coloured Water" and may be found in many shows,  galleries and and private, corporate  and public buildings throughout the country. Among other locations, her work is currently found in her hometown at, "The Blue Moon Gallery", in  Hot Springs, Arkansas.
