October 2017 Exhibit

Arkansas Living Treasure, Leon Niehues, Baskets: Beyond Function

Leon Niehues spent his artistic career on a 40 acre plot of land in the Arkansas Ozarks with the hardwoods of his craft available to harvest just outside his studio. The utilitarian baskets he made have evolved into forms that give homage to the materials, emphasizing sculptural aesthetics and elements of design that live for their own sake. His baskets surpass functionality, holding the viewer in the realm of art as beauty.

Jay McDonald Exhibiton -- Botanicals: Up Close and personal

Jay McDonald is an award winning Fine Art Photographer who has studied under the tutelage and mentoring of several masters in photography including Jay Maisel, George Lepp, Matt Seuss and Tim Ernst in both experiential and landscape photography. He has traveled the world photographing its magnificent people, urban environments and iconic landscapes. His work is displayed in offices, corporate collections, museums and homes throughout the world. Jay says about his work, "The Plant Kingdom throughout art history has supplied endless subject matter for the artist. Through the visual arts, poetry and song, botanicals have been an integral part of our adoration of the beautiful.


Celebrating the Arts in Northwest Arkansas

We depend on the support of patrons, donors and volunteers to bring exciting exhibitions, engaging collaborations, artist talks (Salon Sundays), and community groups into the Gallery where a special view of our quality of life adds an uplifting dimension to every individual. As we strive to normalize public engagement in the arts as a routine practice, we believe that a sense of pride, belonging and ownership is created within the community, and we get closer to achieving our vision.
