'ARKANSAS CHAMPION TREES: AN ARTIST'S JOURNEY'
3 p.m. Terry House Community Arts Center.
Artist Linda Williams Palmer of Hot Springs has always had an affinity for nature, trees and forest scenes in particular, and her talent along that line is considerable. Now, Palmer has gone from the general to the particular, with the colored-pencil drawings, photographs and anecdotes in her exhibition "Arkansas Champion Trees: An Artist's Journey," the culmination of five years of work and 7,000 miles driving around the state. (Champion trees, for the botanically green, are the largest of their species known.) The highly anticipated exhibition, which will tour the state under the aegis of the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, features 18 large-scale color drawings accompanied by information about the trees depicted; detail drawings of foliage, 18 documentary photographs and text panels. There will be an artist's reception Sunday. After leaving the Terry House Nov. 4, the exhibition will travel to the Thea Center in North Little Rock for a show running Nov. 11-Dec. 1 and will continue its Arkansas tour through Dec. 6, 2014. LNP
