Summertime at the Galleries & Bookstore at Library Square
The Galleries & Bookstore at Library Square, located within the CALS Roberts Library, features the work of Arkansas artists, including rotating exhibitions and shows by local Arkansas artists as well as artists from Arkansas who have made an impact on the national and international art scene. Works from the Central Arkansas Library System’s permanent art collection are also displayed regularly. The Retail Gallery offers a wide selection of items by Arkansas artists and artisans—ceramics, greeting cards, blown glass, sculpture, jewelry, and more—that make perfect souvenirs to remember a trip to Arkansas or gifts for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, or no reason at all.
The staff of the Galleries & Bookstore at Library Square has created a curated treasure trove of perfect gifts to give you ideas of what to buy for that special someone this summer. Don’t forget: Father’s Day is coming up on June 20!
All the art is created by Arkansas artisans, from sculptures to cutting boards, wood work, glass, jewelry, pottery, and beyond. And browse our bookstore for a multitude of gently read books, including local author books! Great prices and a great selection. Even if you visit frequently, you’ll be surprised by something new we’ve added.
Of course, it’s fun just to wander around looking at all the originality and master craftsmanship, but if you need a gift for any special occasion, this gallery will become one of your favorite go-to sources. There’s an art piece or crafted item for every price point and taste, and you can be sure your loved one doesn’t have anything like these gifts yet! And shopping local feels good.
We have art made for humans and for homes—wear it or decorate with it!
