  • "Clay County Farm," by Thomas Hart Benton

The Arkansas Arts Center has acquired a late Thomas Hart Benton painting, "Clay County Farm," that shows a man fishing on Benton's property. The 32-by-22 oil was painted in 1971, four years before the artist's death, and was a bequest from the estates of Louise and Fred Dierks. It's on exhibit in the Stephens Gallery, which along with the Bailey Gallery is showing a new exhibit of works from the Arts Center's collection and loans from the Jack Stephens collection in chronological order.

Another gift from the Dierks' estates, a sculpture in marble by Barbara Hepworth, is also on display.
