  • Beckman draws the line at the Arts Center

    October 31, 2014
    Anyone who has ever drawn with charcoal knows how tempting it is to draw outlines in soft, fat, black as night lines. It feels good. But it can really screw up what you're drawing.

    October 8, 2014
    An article on the Huff Post website by Mallika Rao is a nice recounting of the work that went into creating "State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now" at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The Arkansas Times' Art Bus rides again Nov. 8 to Crystal Bridges to see this show, which President Don Bacigalupi refers to in the article as "a truer image of the country" than, say, the Whitney Biennial (the art press has given the exhibit the nickname the "anti-Whitney."). The article names four artists in the show to prove that point. /more/
