2014- 2015 TraveLing Exhibitions Program
Poet in Copper: Engravings by Evan Lindquist
The prints that make up Poet in Copper are drawn from the Arkansas Arts Center's collection of over 225 works by the natural state's Artist Laureate for 2013-2017, Evan Lindquist. Lindquist, a master printmaker, became one of the most important forces in Arkansas graphic art during his forty years teaching printmaking and drawing at Arkansas State University until his retirement in 2003. His lyrical engravings have explored abstract imagery, music, portraiture, landscape, satire, architectural fantasies, and the history of printmaking, among other subjects. This exhibition includes images from throughout Lindquist's long, passionate career in art.
Otto Lang: Drawing From Life
Otto Lang was a master draughtsman who drew extensively from life. Reflecting the world in which he lived, Lang filled sketchbooks with ordinary characters of American life. His figure drawings, landscapes, cityscapes, and interiors formed the basis of illustrative works over a long career. Lang's drawings are the product of careful study and preparation. Drawing from Life focuses on these studies and sketches as they are used to inform and perfect final published illustrations.
Since 1970, the Arkansas Arts Center has enjoyed an active association with the Mid-Southern Watercolorists, a non-profit organization that includes approximately 250 artist members in 17 states. The mission of the Mid-Southern Watercolorists is to elevate the stature of watercolor and educate the public to the significance of watercolor as an important, creative, permanent painting medium. This traveling exhibition includes selections from the 44th annual exhibition at the Historical Arkansas Museum in Little Rock.
