Artosphere kickoff: "Garden as Muse"

Posted By on Mon, Apr 18, 2011 at 12:31 PM


The Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville kicks off its six-week Artosphere Festival on Earth Day, April 22, with the exhibit "Garden as Muse" and entertainment by musicians Shannon Wurtz and the DePue Brothers Band. Music starts at 5:30 p.m. and there will be opening remarks for the exhibit, featuring work by Sally Apfelbaum, Markus Baenziger, Syd Carpenter, Lois Dodd and Sarah McEneaney, at 6:15 in the Joy Pratt Markham Gallery. Curator for the show is Andrea Packard, director of the List Gallery at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania.

Sally Apfelbaum, the artist whose photograph appears above, holds both an MFA in photography and a certificate in landscape design from the New York Botanical Garden. For more information on the other artists in the show go here.

The exhibit runs through June 4. Artosphere will feature dozens of events and performances at the Walton and other Northwest Arkansas locations. A festival pass ($79) gets festival goers into all events. The opening of "Garden as Muse" is free.
