“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.
