Mason Archie and Arkansas-born artist Larry Wade Hampton will be at Hearne Fine Art from 5:30-8 p.m. Friday and give talks 3-5 p.m. Saturday in connection with their exhibition, "Landscapes Unmasked," which also includes work by Dean Mitchell and 19th century African-American artists Robert S. Duncanson and Edward M. Bannister.

Works by Duncanson and Bannister are included in the collection of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, as well as national galleries. Hampton, who has been represented by Hearne Fine Art for several years, is also a dancer. Archie, whose early career was in billboard advertising as art director and pictorial artist for Lamar Outdoor Advertising, was selected to be one of the artists of the "Visions of Our 44th President" exhibition of painted busts of President Obama.

Mitchell will come to the gallery for a reception on Dec. 9 and an artist talk the following day. His work is included in the collections of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, the St. Louis Art Museum, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, the Arkansas Arts Center and the Library of Congress, among other venues.
