The Thea Foundation is putting the spotlight on young emerging artists with its Art Department series, and first  up is “The Picture Never Changes,” work by Dustyn Bork and Carly Dahl. It’s the third Friday of the month, which means its Argenta ArtWalk night in downtown North Little Rock, and Thea is hosting a reception for the artists from 5-8 p.m. Thea’s press release describes the collaborator’s work thusly:


The Picture Never Changes” combines printmaking and painting and is a collaboration between Dustyn Bork, whose work “is deceptively simple with underlying motifs that explore cultural notions of pattern, color, and design,” and Carly Dahl, whose work “pictures psychological pressures and gender identities women deal with in society.” 

Dahl and Bork, who are married, are at Lyon College in Batesville, where he is the director of the Kresge Gallery and she is an assistant professor of art. The exhibit runs through Nov. 22.
