Nathalia Edenmont: Force of Nature is the artist’s first major American museum solo exhibition and features ten, richly colored, large-format photographs. Five of the photographs, including Eden, a self-portrait of the artist, are recent works and have never before been exhibited.
October 27, 2015 — February 14, 2016
In Life in Light: Photographic Travels Through Latin America, documentary photographer Bryan Clifton presents a sample of the visual results of his own experiences traveling through the Americas. Having traveled the globe documenting the work of international development agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and progressive for-profits, Clifton has developed not only a passion for this kind of work, but also gained a conscientiousness of the often difficult situations of the people it touches. For him, experience is the studio—one that is immensely humbling, enlightening and fulfilling.
Throughout the year the Arkansas Arts Center displays works from its own collection. The galleries described below are filled with objects selected dating from over 600 years of Western art right up to the current day. The Arkansas Arts Center Foundation Collection specializes in drawings and contemporary craft, but there are also examples of paintings, sculpture, prints, photography, and decorative arts, among other media.
The scintillating watercolors and drawings of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century French artist Paul Signac are the focus of two intimate galleries at the Arkansas Arts Center that have recently been redesigned and reinstalled. These works come from America’s finest collection of Signac’s graphic art, one hundred and thirty-three works that were assembled by Arkansan industrialist James T. Dyke. Mr. Dyke presented this magnificent collection to the Arkansas Arts Center in 1999.
