2nd Friday Art Night at Library Square (February 2022)
On display at CALS Roberts Library
Jane F. Hankins: The Imaginator Extraordinaire
The Underground Gallery
Witty, whimsical, wonderful—these words describe the creative world of Little Rock artist Jane F. Hankins. The Jonesboro native has been a strong presence in the Arkansas art community for over twenty years. Specializing in sculpture in porcelain and stoneware as well as drawing and painting, Hankins is a designer for nationally marketed sculpture reproductions and the creator of award-winning fine art coloring books. Hankins’s work shows us that art does not have to be serious to be important. The body of work on display includes sculptures and paintings spanning at least two decades, and some larger sculptures from her private collection will be publicly exhibited for the first time.
