Here's an easy pair to identify, Candyfans. These Little Rock artists are having a show, "TWO ARTISTS/TWO VISIONS," at the Evansville Museum in Evansville, Ind., Feb. 27-May 15.
There's a touch of glare on this painting, but Candy fans should know this Arkansas artist. Right?
Theartist12 is correct: DARRELL LOY SCOTT is the artist. He's represented by Taylor's Contemporanea in Hot Springs.
It's been a while since I've put one of these up. Guess away, candy fans. It's easy: Go to the profile link at the top of the home page on the right, create a profile and you can comment to your heart's content! Or click on the comment box below and it will direct you to do just that.
OK, here's a hint. Artist's first and last name are first names!
UPDATE! megan is CORRECT. Tom Richard is a professor of art at the University of Arkansas at Monticello. Here's a link to his profile on Hot Springs' Blue Moon Fine Art Gallery website.
Who is the artist from Hot Springs who created this three-dimensional work? RFG55 and Artmaven need to sit on their hands and let other folks play.
Looks like folks are needing a hint. His name is a name is a name.
Stumped everyone on this one! David Rose is the artist who created this miniature, which is part of the Lost Highway series of scale models of roadside motels of the 1950s. His artist's statement on the Arts Registry page:
When I started driving around this country in the late sixties the interstate was not continuous. The main route went through towns of every size and only the largest cities were by-passed. Even where the interstate was complete the interchanges were barren. In order to get gas, food and lodging one had to leave the four-lane and drive a mile or so into town. Twenty years have brought about a complete reversal in many places. All services are now available along the limited access highway while the center of most towns is deserted. The interstate system provided a breeding ground and conduit for the chains that have come to dominate almost every aspect of our lives. The services are still there, but the independent operator is gone. Driving the old road, the remains of commercial buildings can still be seen and my work springs from these. I try to create a portrait of the people who made their living by the side of the road and tell the story of the end of an era.
Let's do it again. Name the Northeast Arkansas artist who made this spoon sculpture:
You may have seen this identified earlier. If you did, don't comment! I had to change the name of the image to get the identifying name off of it! If you didn't, guess away!
We have a correct answer: It's Les Christensen, ASU's Bradbury Gallery director. Learn more about her here and "True Grit," a show that Christensen has brought to Bradbury Gallery, on the gallery's facebook page.
Thank you, artmaven!

Today I begin the first of what will be sporadic postings of artwork by Arkansans. So ... who did this sculpture? This is a pretty easy one!
