Highlights of the exhibit include selection of cyanotypes from Beverly Buys’ Delta in Blue series.
“The delta region of Arkansas has captured my imagination with its history and harsh beauty. Not an easy place to live, it is nevertheless rich in soul altering ways…Hardship grows hope, strength and ingenuity and that is what my photographs are about.” Jeri Hillis’ oil painting, “Maxine’s Rear Window” depicts layers of history and wear with hopeful blue sky reflections. Dennis McCann’s “Arcade” also captures remnants from the past as elements of design in his pastel work. Donnie Copeland’s abstract “STR 103” is constructed of lines of painted paper to create his earthy patterns.
