Tides & Currents: Contemporary Art Along the Gulf Coast

I am so thankful to be a part of this amazing show at the South Arkansas Arts Center in El Dorado. There are so many amazing artists in this show and I am truely out of my league.  The SAAC is an dynamic facility in a wonderful art supporting town of El Dorado Arkansas.  If you are in the area, please visit, even if it is long after this show is down.  I promise you will not regret it!

"New discoveries abound as 15 artists from across the south coast return to the Merkle and Price Galleries of the South Arkansas Arts Center for a new exhibition entitled “Tides and Currents: Contemporary Art Along the Gulf Coast.”  The collection will be on display through June 28. An artist reception will be hosted by the visual arts committee on Saturday, June 28 from 6-8pm. The exhibition is sponsored by Southern Bancorp and Teague Auto Group.
The exhibition marks the return of many of the artists to SAAC’s galleries with new creations that explore various mediums and the versatility of art.  The exhibition includes works in acrylics, assemblages, encaustics, graphite and ink on wood, handmade papers, pottery, sculpture, textiles, and watercolor.
The award winning artists included in the exhibition are Annette Blocker, Susan Carranza, Kat Fitzpatrick, Kerr Grabowski, Mary Hardy, Carol Hutcherson, Adele Lawton, Ellen Ellis Lee, Trailer McQuilkin, Bill Myers, Vicki Niolet, Mary Pickard, Joey Rice, Peggy Tilley, and Jessie Florence Zenor." - SAAC Website
