Sorry, Candy fans, for the lack of postings. I’ve been slaving away over a review of “Bigger, Better, More” at the Arts Center. You’ll see it here soon.
In the meantime, here’s some news: Retired Arkansas State University art professor Evan Lindquist will be honored with the Society of American Graphic Artists’ Lifetime Achievement Award at a dinner in New York on Oct. 22.
According to an announcement e-mailed to me by Chuck Kaufman, former arts writer for the (real) Arkansas Gazette and longtime friend of Lindquist’s, Lindquist’s prints can be found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Galleria degli Uffizi in Florence, Italy, Reina Sophia in Madrid, the Nelson-Atkins Gallery in Kansas City and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
Lindquist initiated ASU’s “Delta National Small Prints Exhibition” in 1996, which has brought from contemporary printmakers across the country to the university. He retired in 2003 and still lives in Jonesboro.
