Just one correction on the story above. Effie Anderson Smith was born in 1869 in Arkansas, but moved with her family to New Mexico in 1892, and then to Arizona where she married at Bisbee in 1895. She spend most of her adult life in Pearce (1896-1941), in Douglas (1941-51) and Prescott (1951-55).
If you missed opportunity to see her Impressionist paintings in Pearce over Thanksgiving, be sure to join us for the larger retrospective exhibit of her finest work during the Arizona Centennial celebrations in Douglas - when the Douglas Art Association hosts their centennial exhibit entitled "Effie Anderson Smith: Pioneer Painter", at their Gallery during the entire month of February 2012.
