Singular interpretations of nature is the theme for the "2016 Women to Watch" exhibition of the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts. The statewide tour of the show, featuring work by Dawn Holder, Sandra Luckett, Katherine Rutter and Melissa Wilkinson, has opened at the Arts and Science Center of Southeast Arkansas in Pine Bluff.

Included in the show are Holder's "Once Upon a Time in the Forest of I’m Not Good Enough," a 10-foot by 10-foot amalgam of trees, flowers, cattails, and pools made of porcelain, porcelain paper-clay, poly-fill, plaster, sugar, chocolate and butterscotch almond bark, hard candy, cotton candy, and iridescent paint; Luckett's installation of 12 digital photographs; Rutter’s mixed-media drawings of fictional environments and Wilkinson's surreal still life compositions in watercolor.  

Holder, an assistant professor of art at the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville, also had work in the "Organic Matters: Women to Watch 2015" national NMWA exhibition in Washington. Luckett is an assistant professor of Art at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. Rutter is formerly of  Little Rock; she just had a show at the Historic Arkansas Museum. Wilkinson is an assistant professor of art at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro.

The tour is made possible by the Windgate Foundation of Siloam Springs. The
