Harmons Cul-de-sac
  • Harmon's "Cul-de-sac"

Erin Harmon, who teaches painting at Rhodes College in Memphis, is giving a talk at 3 p.m. today in the Fine Arts Center Gallery of Arkansas State about her exhibition, "Midnight Garden," on view through Oct. 21.

About the paintings, she writes:

These "Midnight Gardens" incorporate real and imagined exquisite botanical fragments, strange flora, and sentimental mementos into a beautiful but sterile Eden. The paintings teeter between still life objects and landscape representation that implicates the viewer as participant. Inspired by myths as well as allusions to the landscape as feminine, these objectified forests and gardens embody a timeless and mystical space while also suggesting a sense of desire, anxiety, and a loss of authenticity.
