May Exhibition Features Two Excellent Shows

The Arts Center will host an artist reception Sunday, May 5, from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. to give the public an opportunity to meet the exhibiting local artists and hear their gallery talk and enjoy a juried touring show from Arkansas Arts Council, "Small Works on Paper." The touring exhibit is showing in 11 different galleries throughout the state during its year-long tour. Local artist Rachel Trusty has a piece featured in the exhibit along with 36 pieces from other Arkansas artists.

Always popular pieces by Winston Taylor and his students will also grace the Gallery. Taylor has taught many students from as far away as Little Rock who have themselves developed into accomplished artists. You are sure to know most of them and enjoy their works of art.

This year's Small Works exhibition was juried by Anne Austin Pearce, professor of art and Director of Greenlease Gallery, Rockhurst University, Kansas City, Missouri. "I was especially impressed by the conceptual depths found in these works, as well as the diversity of the media," Pearce said. "Although the Pottery Exhibition is not a juried show, it is equally impressive in the quality of the work," said Betty LaGrone, Arts Center executive director.

Refreshments will be served by Amy Whitlow and Lynette Griffin members of the Arts Center Board of Directors and exhibiting ceramic artists. Both exhibits will remain open to the public throughout the month of May from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Fridays. Admission is free and the public is encouraged to attend
