  • "Arkansas Champion Trees: An Artist's Journey" opens Sunday at The Terry House.

'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.

  • Finally, a memorial to the 21 boys who were burned to death at Wrightsville in '59

    It has been 59 years since 21 teen-aged boys incarcerated at the so-called Negro Boys Industrial School were burned to death in their locked dormitory. The Times wrote about the event in 2008, after the brother and mother of one of the boys approached the Times looking for someone to remember the event, and headlined the story "Stirring the Ashes." But on Saturday, a monument to the boys was placed at Haven of Rest Cemetery, where 14 of the boys were buried.
