2023-2025 Artist Registry
"Jurying this group of artists has been an honor and a challenge. All demonstrate the tremendous skill and creativity among self-identifying female artists in Arkansas, whether by artists with established records of creativity or emerging artists with exciting promise. Those selected represent a variety of backgrounds, from the self-taught to the professional. They also work with diverse media and explore a range of experiences, from nature and everyday life to history, memory, culture and identity. And each, in powerful, inspiring and productive ways, expands concepts about the world around us, signaling the importance and promise of art and culture in Arkansas."
