Flourish features paintings by two artists who take cues from nature: Jessica Mongeon, of Ozark, and Cara Sullivan, of Jonesboro. Mongeon’s inspiration comes from the Ozark-St. Francis National Forest and Petit Jean State Park in Arkansas. Using an eco-friendly paper, she explores the idea of scale in nature. Sullivan’s recent paintings pay homage to the overgrowth. Her spray painted surfaces reserve attention for the castaways— the uncultivated blooms of common weeds. (more)

Olivia Trimble: Ozark Comforts Olivia Trimble cares about her community and understands the power of words and images to lift people up or tear them down. Using the tools of a traditional sign painter, she aims to improve the urban landscape. Trimble opened her business, Sleet City Signs, determined to recapture the excitement and individuality common to hand-painted signs of times past. (more)


Featured Focus from the Permanent Collection In honor of Black History Month, the foyer gallery will display a selection of contemporary fine art by influential African American Arkansas artists during the month of February. The focused look includes an iconic delta landscape by Henri Linton, Larry Wade Hampton’s impressionistic scene of daily life, a country church by Glenda McCune and the delicate silverpoint realism of a Marjorie Williams-Smith still life.

Booksigning: Kat Robinson will be in the store during 2nd Friday Art Night, visiting and signing copies of her new book Arkansas Food: The A to Z of Eating in The Natural State. Robinson has studied the cuisine of the region for more than a decade, and this book is the culmination of that research, laid out in a handy glossary including everything from apple butter to zucchini bread. With more than 130 Arkansas recipes and 450 full color photographs, you'll be sure to crave what The Natural State brings to the table.
