About Our Art
Aaron Horrell is juried in photography and painting.
I have been painting pictures and selling my artwork since graduating high school in 1970. My paintings are generally considered as ‘impressionistic’ in style and have a landscape format. Some are realistic and some are surreal. I currently own Painted Wren Art Gallery in Cape Girardeau. I’m a member of SEMO Arts Council and also belong to the local juried art group known as The Artists Co-op. I’m a past president of The Sikeston Art League. As a nature photographer I belong to River Region Photography Association. I write a weekly feature for Southeast Missourian newspaper called ‘THROUGH THE WOODS’. I write a featured column for the monthly outdoor news journal River Hills Traveler called ‘NATURE’S CORNER’. I chair the annual Mingo Swamp Photo Contest sponsored by Mingo National Wildlife Refuge, US Fish & Wildlife Service, and Mingo Swamp Friends Group. My paintings have won numerous awards over the years.
