"Al Allen: A Retrospective" is open

Al Allen, Winter
  • Al Allen, "Winter"

Al Allen's hard-edged paintings of windows and clapboard and light are some of the best recognized in Arkansas. Works by the late artist, who developed the art department at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, go on display at the William F. Laman Library, 2801 Orange St., in North Little Rock. It's the first retrospective of the artist's work since an Arkansas Arts Center exhibition in 1995.

The works range in date from the 1950s to 2008 and come from private and public collections, UALR and the artist's estate. Some will be for sale through Greg Thompson Fine Art (Thompson and Debra Wood of the library curated the show). The gallery will be open late tonight from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The exhibition runs through Dec. 12.
