  • "Double Portrait, Marci" by LaToya Hobbs

Hearne Fine Art,1001 Wright Ave., is hosting a reception from 5-8 p.m. tonight for "Beautiful Uprising," an exhibition of woodcuts by Little Rock artist LaToya Hobbs. Hobbs will give a gallery talk Saturday at 11 a.m. and a panel discussion, "Relevance of HAIR," at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow afternoon.

From Hobbs' artist statement:

My work is an investigation of the point where the notions of race, identity, and beauty intersect concerning women of African descent. In this exploration, women, those with whom I have personal and virtual interactions, play a role that is paramount, making them the source of my inspiration and an integral part of my creative process.

Hobbs receives her MFA degree from Purdue this month.

The exhibition continues at Hearne through June 8.
