Hearne Fine Art | Downtown | Galleries & Museums | Arts
Proprietor Garbo Hearne has been in the African-American art business for 16 years, spotlighting 20th century artists -- Elizabeth Catlett, Dean Mitchell, George Hunt, Kevin Cole, TWIN, Benny Andrews, John Biggers, Samella Lewis among them -- and early American masters like Henry Ossawa Tanner, Edward Bannister and Robert Duncanson. Hearne has a good eye for art, a passion for education and has introduced Arkansas's uncelebrated folk artists, like Alonzo Ford of Helena/West Helena, to a new audience. Pyramid Art & Books, at the same address, also sells books by African-Americans: fiction, non-fiction, art-related and so forth. No art lover should miss this gem, purposely located on the edge of a largely African-American residential neighborhood (and adjoining husband Dr. Archie Hearne's medical clinic).

    Art walk guide

    You might say that we like to party arty, those of us who enjoy a glass of wine and conversation surrounded by paintings and pots and prints. Or the more cultured might say, Vive le salon! There is a 20-year-plus tradition of art walks in Arkansas, some carried on all year, others on special weekends. You stroll, look at new work, and if you're lucky you meet the artist and hear him or her give a talk. Appreciation grows, the artist sells, everybody's happy. Here's a list of towns and times to devote an hour or two to art.
