Edgington, who worked for the Central Arkansas Library System for 23 years, began making collage art in the 1970s and frequently exhibited it at the Cox Creative Center's gallery for its employees and elsewhere. Her work is in the collection of the Museum of Discovery, CALS and Heifer International. She died Nov. 19, 2015. Besides works by Edgington will be collages and mixed media work by Michael Church, Becky Botos, Erin Lorenzen, Byron Werner, Cherece Athy, Jerry Colburn, Jessica Crenshaw, Daniel Evans, Laura Fanning, Lilia Hernandez Galusha and Sulac.

The Art in the Park Gallery at Wildwood is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The show runs through Dec. 16.
