Art students at the University of Arkansas at Monticello will display their works at two art sale receptions Nov. 16 in Little Rock’s downtown River Market district.
The receptions, which will feature the works of students and faculty from 12 Arkansas colleges and universities, are being sponsored by the THEA Foundation, an Arkansas based non-profit foundation, and will be held in The Amy Howard Richmond Fine Art Gallery at 424 President Clinton Boulevard.
The first reception, designated “Afternoon Delight,” will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Tickets are $25. A second “Art After Hours” reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Tickets to the late reception are $40. Food and beverages will be served at both receptions. Ticket sales and 10 percent of the gallery sales will benefit the THEA Foundation.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to display their work and earn some money for the long hours they’ve spent in the creative process,” said Tom Richard, assistant professor of art at UAM.
Last year, the THEA Foundation provided $68,000 in college scholarships to 13 high school seniors.
UAM students who will be displaying their works at the receptions are John Jackson, a freshman art major from Monticello; Jenny Baird, a junior education major from Star City; Betty Bridges, a freshman art major from Montrose; Laura McKinney, a senior art major from Warren; Rusty Nail, a junior art major from Batesville; John David Carson, a freshman art major from Monticello; Autumn Waddle, a sophomore general studies major from Pocahontas; Jennifer Chapman, a senior art major from Monticello, Justin Miller, a post baccalaureate student from Monticello; and Jill Moore, a junior art major from Rye.Have a comment?
