“Mills of the Ozarks” Paintings by Rosie Freeman on display at Ozarks Medical Center

Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) recently hosted an art reception in the main lobby. Attending the reception were members of the Rosie Freeman Family, OMC Board of Directors, OMC coworkers and members of the public. Kevin Gleghorn, Chair of the OMC Board of Directors, addressed the audience and thanked the Rosie Freeman Family for their generous gift. Rosie’s son, Patrick Freeman, shared his thoughts and memories about his mother’s painting.

“Mills of the Ozarks,” featuring the works of artist Rosie Augusta Grandt Freeman, are currently on display in the main lobby of OMC. The original paintings of Turner Mill, Hodgson Mill, Dawt Mill, Greer Mill, Alley Spring Mill, and a winter barn scene have been loaned to OMC by Rosie and her family.

The paintings on display were painted in the late 1960s to early 1970s. The canvases were mounted on Rosie’s dining room walls and remained there until recently when her children, Patrick and Christine removed them. The paintings were cleaned and restored and have been framed for everyone who visits OMC to enjoy.

For more information about the paintings, contact OMC Marketing and Public Relations Department at 417-257-6735.
