  • PRIVATE SHOWING: Kitty Blandy work in home show.
Her brother’s wedding this week has led Londoner Susan Johnson Mumford, a Hendrix College graduate, to return to Arkansas for a week and put on an exhibition of international art. While Mumford’s brother is away on his honeymoon, she’ll use his private residence at 1704 N. Harrison, on the south side of Cantrell Road just west of Kavanaugh, for the exhibition of contemporary and 20th century art. “Creative Relief in the Days of Summer: An Exhibition of International Art” runs July 20-23 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and noon-6 p.m. July 24. A special closing reception and party is Tuesday, July 26, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. A silent auction will be taking place throughout the show with results at 7 p.m. July 26. “It’s not a simple matter, imagining how a work of art will look when it leaves the gallery walls and enters your own living room,” Mumford said. “An interior exhibition offers a solution to this problem.” Mumford grew up here and graduated from Hendrix with a degree in fine art. She got her master’s in art in Arts Policy and Management at the University of London, and followed her dream by creating the London-based Mumford Fine Art. Her husband, John, is a 1998 Hendrix graduate as well. Several countries are represented by artists in the exhibition. Kitty Blandy, Jason Bowyer, Stephen Canino, Michael Cardinali, Amanda Cornish, Olivia Lomenech Gill and Lin Jammet are among the contemporary artists featured, along with late British sculptor and printmaker Dame Elisabeth Frink. The overall selection is varied among paintings, prints (etchings, monoprints and woodcuts), drawings and photographs. ? Judy Shantz Honey, a nationally recognized artist, will have her paintings on display at St. Vincent Doctors Hospital this summer. A reception is planned Thursday, July 21, from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the hospital’s administrative office lobby. Honey’s exhibit will be on display and for sale through August. The St. Vincent Foundation receives a percentage from each piece of art sold to help pay for immunizations for children whose parents can’t afford them and for prescription drugs for patients who don’t have medical insurance. Also, among other things, money from the sale of the art is used to buy mastectomy bras and prostheses, and to pay for makeovers and wigs for women treated for breast cancer. Honey’s paintings have been chosen for the Mid-Southern Watercolorists Annual Exhibitions held at the Arkansas Art Center and the Historic Arkansas Museum. She is a signature member and past officer on the board of Mid-Southern Watercolorists, and is also a member of the Arkansas Artists Registry and past officer of the Arkansas League of Artists. Her paintings are exhibited in Little Rock at Cox Creative Gallery, the Arkansas Repertory Theater and Chameleon Art Gallery.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
