Textile artist Louise Halsey will represent Arkansas in the National Museum of Women in the Arts’ exhibition, “High Fiber: Women to Watch 2012,” opening Nov. 2 in Washington, D.C.
Halsey’s woven wool works “Supersize My House (2011),” “Dream Facade (2005),” “Crackhouse (2006)” and “House/Moon (2005)” were selected for the museum’s biennial “Women to Watch” exhibit. The show runs through Jan. 6, 2013.
Five Arkansas women were nominated for the show: Halsey, of Little Rock; Barbara Cade of Hot Springs, Jennifer Libby Fay of Rogers, Jane Hartfield of Fort Smith and Deborah Kuster of Conway. An exhibition featuring work by the five artists will tour the state in 2013.
