“Repurposed Wonders: The Sculpture of Danny Campbell,” at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, features sculpture of painted and cut tire treads by the art professor at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. There will be a reception for the artist from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 13 at the museum, 501 W. Ninth St. The show runs through April 26.

Here's a little art history for Black History Month, which Mosaic Templars is celebrating: Campbell is the latest descendant in a line of fine African-American artists from Pine Bluff inspired by geometrical color. First, there was former UAPB instructor Tarrence Corbin, who died in 2009 after gaining national acclaim:

Corbin was succeeded by Kevin Cole, who is also known nationally:

  • A miscellany of art: Aug. 10-16

    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.
