At Thea: Margaret LeJeune

  • LeJeune's "Angela"

"Modern Day Diana," photographs by Margaret LeJeune, is on exhibit at the Thea Center, 401 Main St., North Little Rock, which will be open from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight for Argenta ArtWalk.

LeJeune's work features women hunter's some posed with their weapons, some in interior spaces decorated with their trophies. The photographs explore the dichotomy of femininity and the hunt: one woman, in a skirt and with a flower in her hair, is posed under her trophies; another sits at a sewing machine set beneath her gun rack, repairing her overalls.

LeJeune is assistant professor of art at Lyon College.

Also at Thea tonight: Ceramic bowls by art students of Matt Teravest of Hall High and Bonni Mogstad of Parkview Magnet school. The project was an effort to teach the students about philanthropy; the bowls will be sold for $20 each to benefit the Arkansas Food Bank. (I'm not sure that's a lesson all artists, tired of being asked to donate their work for benefits, would appreciate, but it still sounds like a nice way to help out the food bank.)
