Those are just a few of the artists whose works will be at Greg Thompson Fine Art when the promising “Southern Landscape” exhibition officially opens for Argenta ArtWalk tomorrow 5-8 p.m.
Here’s the full roster for the show: Al Allen, Thomas Hart Benton, Darrell Berry, Gary Bolding, Adrian Brewer, J.O. Buckley, Roger Carlisle, Carroll Cloar, Shelia Cotton, William Dunlap, Louis Freund, Charles Harrington, Colette Pope Heldner, Dolores Justus, Matt McLeod, Laura Raborn, Ed Rice, Kendall Stallings, Barry Thomas and Rebecca Thompson. Most are well-known Arkansans with a few furriners thrown in.
Here’s a little bit about Ed Rice, whose work you see above. Note that the author of the write-up, David Houston, then of the Ogden Museum, is now director of curatorial at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
Greg Thompson Fine Art will be one of several venues open Friday evening for Argenta ArtWalk; others are the Thea Center, the Argenta branch of Laman Library, the new Paint Box Gallery (where Ketz Gallery was located) and the “Gathering of Artists” in tents on Main.
