"Solostalgia": Chambers and Halsey

Posted By on Tue, Oct 9, 2012 at 12:00 PM

House under Water, by Louise Halsey
  • "House under Water," by Louise Halsey

Susan Chambers and Louise Halsey are two of the most distinctive artists in Arkansas. Their work — Chambers' paintings and mixed media and Halsey's weavings — shows just what pros they are, with their unique approach to subject matter. Now they are teamed up for a show at the Butler Center called "Solostalgia," which means (I looked it up just for their show!) "the pain experienced when there is recognition that the place where one resides and that one loves is under immediate assault." You can thank philosopher Glenn Albrecht for coming up with the term in 2003.

Anyway, the images I've seen from the show are of homes — on fire, under water, etc. You'll have to go to the show to see more. It opens at the Butler Center Oct. 12, 2nd Friday Art Night, with a reception from 5-8 p.m.
