Over the past few years, Doug Stowe has written several great articles for Fine Woodworking. And for each one, I had the good fortune of getting the assignment to work with him. That always meant a visit to Doug’s workshop, tucked away in the beautiful Ozark Mountain town of Eureka Springs, Ark. Each visit was a treat, and I quickly learned to appreciate Doug as a talented woodworker and a dedicated teacher at the nearby Clear Spring School. He’s also the kind of individual who can always make you feel genuinely welcome and completely at ease.

So I was delighted to learn recently that the Department of Arkansas Heritage and the Arkansas Arts Council have designated Doug as an Arkansas Living Treasure. The Living Treasure designation “recognizes Arkansans in the visual arts field of traditional craft whose contributions to that field, over a lifetime, have fostered significant recognition for their art form.”

A reception honoring Doug will be held this Sunday, May 17th, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs.

Congratulations, Doug, from everyone here at Fine Woodworking.
