Folk art at Rogers Historical Museum

Posted By on Mon, Jul 22, 2013 at 4:51 PM

Get a feel for days gone by at the “Works in Wood: A Folk Art Sampler" exhibition at the Rogers Historical Museum that opens Saturday, July 27.

The show includes work from the museum's collection by Roy Harris, the so-called "ol whittler" who in the 1960s displayed his works at Frost’s High Sky Inn motor court on a county road between Springdale and War Eagle. It includes other works as well, such as canes, musical instruments, wooden toys, hand-painted signs, folk marquetry by Henry Tribble of Rogers and a cigar store Indian figure.

The exhibition runs through Sept. 28. The museum will hold a Folk Art Family Day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 21, with demonstrations and hands-on workshops in weaving, seed art, and other folk crafts. Admission is free. The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday in the Rogers Historic District.

    We don't get to post all the jpegs of artwork on exhibit that come into the office, but they have more allure and tell you more about the work than what I can write about them. Hence this slideshow of work from shows opening tonight (Aug. 10) for 2nd Friday Art Night, 5-8 p.m. (see the To Do list for more information), and other openings and shows this weekend and in the days ahead.
