  • AT JUSTUS FINE ART: Work by Emily Wood, who is also showing at the Thea Foundation.


If you're going to the Thea Foundation tomorrow night (Feb. 7) for the second installment of its The Art Department series of work by young professionals, you'll see work by Emily Wood

If you're going to the Hot Springs Gallery Walk tomorrow night and you happen in Justus Fine Art, you'll see work by Emily Wood. 

At Thea, 401 Main St. in Argenta, where Wood's exhibit "Specifically Universal" is up through the month, Wood's painting created for the signature piece of the Thea Arts Festival in April will be unveiled. The event is 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and the $10 ticket will get you food, an open bar, art and music by the Funkanites.

Justus will be open 5-9 p.m. for the monthly gallery walk there, and her work will be joined by works by Donnie Copeland, Steve Griffith, Robyn Horn, Dolores Justus and Rebecca Thompson.

Wood — who paints on unprimed wood — earned a master's in fine arts degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2011 and already she's exhibited in the Arkansas Arts Center's Delta exhibit — twice. 

From Thea about Wood's show there:

“Specifically Universal” explores and conveys a sense of place through the personalities of the people who inhabit that place. People and places are interconnected because each influences the personality of the other. Many of the subjects in Wood’s paintings are people whom the artist has known from her hometown in south Arkansas as well as friends and family from other rural areas of the South. Wood quotes Mexican muralist Diego Riviera as her inspiration, “He who hopes to be universal in his art, must plant in his own soil.” 

Dustyn Bork and Carly Dahl were the first artists to exhibit in The Art Department series, last November.
