Heart for the Arts: Light is Transformative

We used Lowe’s in Conway and we actually SAVED $10,000 by using their lighting. Yes, Lighting can be transformative!

Stop by Art on the Green anytime between 10 AM and 5 PM Monday – Friday for a peek.

Now, our Art looks better than ever thanks to Lowe’s in Conway.

Top Ten things You Should Know About ‘Arkansas Naturals’ Art Show

Arkansas Naturals-Gov.Mansion Show-Environmental0608_3

Art on the Green is proud to be displaying, “Arkansas Naturals” in the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion this summer.  Before you attend the mansion to peruse the show, here’s ten facts to give you all the details about the artists, mansion, and inspiration behind the artwork.

Arkansas Governors Mansion 1

  1. The Arkansas Governor’s Mansion has housed artwork from across the state for 67 years after its completion in 1950, and has been the home of 12 governors

  2. “Arkansas Naturals” highlights 40 works by six artists whose works depict Arkansas in its many forms.

  3. The works displayed showcase scenes from across the Natural State, from the Buffalo River to Petit Jean Mountain

  4. Many of the art pieces focus on still-lifes of flowers or farm animals; this reflects Arkansas’ nickname as the “Natural State,” and our focus on agriculture, livestock, and the scenic beauty of the outdoors

  5. Jay Ewing, one of the highlighted artists, actually lives in Pasadena, California, but returns to Arkansas to paint landmarks and cities many Arkansans will recognize, like his painting “A Spring on the Corner-Eureka Springs.”

  6. Linda Flake showcases several pieces in the show, but her work “Gossiping Crows” has one of the best backstories. Flake said she was inspired by the crows she could hear by her cottage in Hot Springs, whose noises reminded her of “little men.”

  7. Nina Baker, while being a prominently featured artist in the show, also owns the Art on the Green gallery, and is an avid supporter of the arts in Central Arkansas. Her works draw from her faith and the inspiration of scripture in the world, and often showcase the lambs and sheep her family own.First-Lady-with-AOTG-blog
  8. Three of the artists in the show are actually related; Parilee Croft and Nina Baker are sisters, and Carolyn Baker is Nina’s mother-in-law. The three certainly keep art in the family with their beautiful still-lifes and watercolors that reflect the natural beauty of the state around them.

  9. Sheila Parsons brings a familiar view off of Petit Jean to life with “Misty Dawn from Petit Jean.” Parsons, a prominent watercolorist and teacher of art classes at Art on the Green, has a long history of painting from the mountain; 60 years’ worth, in fact.  She loves the brow depicted in her painting so much she says she wants
    her ashes scattered from it.

  10. There are still tour dates available until the show’s end on August 25th that allow the public to see the works on display in the Governor’s Mansion.
