By Leslie Newell Peacock

Through Nov. 9. Gallery hours: 9 a.m.-6 p.m. weekdays.

Erin Lorenzen, "Mi Angelito"

Work by textile artists from around Arkansas is on exhibit at the Argenta branch of the Laman Library. Curated by Erin Lorenzen, the show’s participating artists include Louise Halsey, Barbara Cade, Melissa Emily Gill, Britynn Davis, Tina Oppenheimer, Randi Curtis, Suzannah Schreckhise, Emily Moll Wood, Holly Laws, Marianne Nolley, Melissa Lashbrook, Dani Ives, Teresa Schlabach, Michael S. Rowland, Deborah Kuster, Cathy Wester, Jane Hartfield and Lorenzen.

All are well-known artists. Halsey was named by the Arkansas Arts Council as the 2017 Arkansas Living Treasure for her work creating fine art weavings, rugs and dolls. Laws’ work (in metal) was featured in the “Women to Watch: Heavy Metal State Tour” of the state chapter of the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Ives, who recently held a felting workshop in Little Rock, is the author of “Painting with Wool: Sixteen Artful Projects to Needle Felt.”

The exhibition includes woven, felted, crocheted and mixed media works that “push the boundaries of the medium, Lorenzen said in a press release.
