Six women who were nominated for consideration for The National Museum of Women in the Arts “Body of Work” exhibit in Washington are showing their work at the Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas through March 19. The show will make three other stops in Arkansas. Included in the exhibit are works by Emily Wood, Endia Gomez, Janet Frankovic, Nikki Hemphill, Ruth Pasquine and Thu Nguyen; Catherine Brimberry was also a nominee but does not have work in the show. Deborah Warren (a 2007 nominee) is showing her photographs as well.
Hemphill, of Harrison, was chosen as the Arkansas representative for the national exhibit by NMWA contemporary curator Kathryn A. Wat.
Nominees were selected by Les Christensen of the Bradbury Gallery in Jonesboro. For information on the Arkansas Committee of NMWA, go here.
