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. He filled sketchbooks with figure drawings, landscapes, cityscapes, interiors, and ideas for his illustrative work. This exhibition is a sampling of his work selected from a collection of over 350 drawings, watercolors, and illustrations. Born in Toledo, Ohio May 28, 1866, Lang studied art under Edmond H. Osthaus, and at the Art Students League in New York. While in New York, Lang illustrated a story for a western newspaper with sketches of immigrants on Ellis Island, which led to a career as an illustrator for the New York Sun. He went on to illustrate for magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Life, Good Housekeeping, McClure’s, Century, Brooklyn Life, and Literary Digest. Lang moved to Little Rock in 1939 to live with his son Fred H. Lang, an Arkansas State Forester. He died in Little Rock in 1940.
