In addition to the ACANSA opening events, CALS Library Square will be hosting its own 2nd Friday Art Night events.
Opening in the Underground Gallery – Carol Corning: Reflections
Artist Carol Corning’s works seek to recreate shared memories of a simpler time when everything important seemed to happen around the kitchen table. The fused glass and textile artworks in this exhibition are reminiscent of the quilts Corning’s mother made for her family and friends, evoking the lives of the women she grew up with in the country.
Opening in Concordia Hall – “Pass the Biscuits!”: The King Biscuit Blues Festival and Arkansas Blues
Since 1986, the annual King Biscuit Blues Festival has assembled the world’s best blues artists to perform in historic downtown Helena-West Helena, Arkansas. For this exhibition, King Biscuit Blues Festival posters and other musical artifacts provide a visual timeline to tell the festival’s story and to celebrate the past, present, and future of the blues in Arkansas.
Musical Guest: Fonky Donkey Duo (slide blues guitar & percussion vocal duo)
West Gallery: Arkansas Society of Printmakers: Big Impression Prints
Loft Gallery: Melissa Cowper-Smith – Natural Treatment, 2018–2019
