Leslie Nichols' series Textual Portraits: Envisioning Social Heritage is now on display at John Brown University Art Gallery in Siloam Springs, AR. From the press release: “We are excited to present the artwork of Nichols on the JBU campus,” said Charles Peer, director of the JBU Visual Arts Department Gallery. “She brings together elements of art that we rarely think of as compatible: typography, printmaking, drawing, realistic portraits, in such a way that the sum is far greater than the parts. A clear sense of personality is evident in each of the portraits through the poses, the strong compositions and the delicate handling of the materials.” The creation of this series was supported by an Artist Enrichment Grant from the Kentucky Foundation for Women.
The exhibit will be on display Feb. 3-24. The gallery is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Sunday 2 p.m.-4 p.m. or by special arrangement. The exhibit is free and open to the public. For further information you may contact the JBU Department of Visual Arts at 479-238-8561.
