Carol Corning: Reflections

On view in the Underground Gallery

Artist Carol Corning’s works seek to recreate shared memories of a simpler time when everything important seemed to happen around the kitchen table. The fused glass and textile artworks in this exhibition are reminiscent of the quilts Corning’s mother made for her family and friends, evoking the lives of the women she grew up with in the country.

The Galleries at Library Square are FREE and open to the public Monday through Saturday from 9-6.

New Work from John Kushmaul

On view in the Loft Gallery

John Kushmaul’s works are based on photographs that he takes of the city. Little Rock serves as a convenient subject because of the variety of architecture covering the history of modern life in Arkansas. The street lights, power poles, wires, and satellite dishes show parts of the layers of technology that cover this history. The light of the seasons, also, is the subject of some of these works.

The Galleries at Library Square are FREE and open to the public Monday through Saturday from 9-6.
