A Sense of Balance:

The Sculpture of Stoney Lamar

October 24, 2014 — January 18, 2015

This exhibition of the sculpture of Stoney Lamar presents work from 1987 to the present. Uninspired by traditional turned wood vessel forms Stoney Lamar embarked on a personal exploration of the lathe and other tools of turners and woodworkers. This spirit of experimentation has firmly placed his work in the avant-garde of the wood turning world. Not only was he one of the first to use multi-axial turning, but eventually he added steel, color and distressed surface treatments.

Art in Context

Ongoing

Half a millennium of Western art history is illustrated through drawings, paintings, prints, and sculpture from the permanent collection of the Arkansas Arts Center. The exhibition shows how such traditions of European art continued into the nineteenth century before being overturned by modern masters like the Mexican Diego Rivera. Rivera’s 1914 cubist masterpiece, Dos Mujeres, is one of the treasures of the collection.

Color, An Artist's Tale: Paintings by Virmarie DePoyster

October 28, 2014 — February 15, 2015
