Steven Wise: O…Is for Ozark
Now through Saturday, October 29, 2022
O…Is for Ozarks is made up of large pictures inspired by artist Steven Wise’s study of the Ozark Mountains, the natural surroundings in which he lives and which he considers home. These new works derive from his exploration of the natural world of northwest Arkansas as both naturalist and artist.
Yard Work: Inspirations Found in Our Own Backyards
Now through Saturday, October 1

Allen Jarvis: Land, Water, and Sky
Now through Saturday, September 24
Many of the places that inspired these simple abstract landscapes of land, water, and sky are in Arkansas and Alabama, especially in the wetlands area of upper Mobile Bay. Artist Allen Jarvis uses objects like yardsticks, rulers, and brightly colored protractors—affixed to reclaimed wood—to build the playful bridges and manmade structures from memory, creating joyful paintings that remind him of the journeys that inspired them.
While you’re visiting downtown, experience the local vendors and restaurants in the River Market Entertainment District.
