Maumelle artist John Wooldridge, in his statement for Cantrell Gallery, says: "Lonely times, lonely places, the periods of transition and reconciliation of loss. I am driven by the beauty of nature and the place of humans within it. I have a predilection for those themes with which I am most familiar and which were meaningful to me in my childhood. Streams, rivers and bodies of water hold a particular fascination as do small towns and the fading remnants of our civilization, so quickly reclaimed by the land."

See Wooldridge and his show, "The Quiet Hours," pieces he's painted in the 75 counties of Arkansas, at tonight's reception, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the gallery, 8206 Cantrell Road. You can see more paintings and a video of Wooldridge and his work at the gallery's Facebook page.

The show runs through July 10. The gallery will be closed May 23-25 for Memorial Day weekend, the Fourth of July and will close at 2 p.m. Friday, July 10, and reopen at 10 a.m. Monday, July 13.
