The Central Arkansas Library System’s Library Square plays host to TWO different 2nd Friday Art Night locations.
The Galleries at Library Square – Concordia Hall Gallery presents “Fifty Years of McFarlin Oil: Paintings and Sculpture by an Arkansas Traveler”
Their newest exhibition features the work of Patrick McFarlin. He has been making art under the moniker of McFarlin Oil for more than fifty years.
This exhibition of paintings and sculptures follows McFarlin from his time creating works of sculpture during the Bay Area funk movement back to his home state of Arkansas as he works through the eighties and beyond, painting his varieties of Ships of Fools as well as large so-called Manic-Expressive narrative paintings.
Featured music artist DJ Mike Poe (diverse solo vinyl DJ).
Three other continuing exhibitions include “EMBRAID—Three Northwest Arkansas Strands” in the Underground Gallery, “Part to Whole: The Making of Art, the Artist, and the Artists’ Artist Group” in the West Gallery, and Ron Robinson’s collection of vintage movie posters.
Visit the bookstore six days a week. Three floors of books, gifts, locally made art & jewelry, plus an art gallery on the 3rd floor. By far the best place to buy used books in central Arkansas. Monday – Saturday 9am-5pm. Gallery open during regular bookstore hours.
