Allen Jarvis: Land, Water, and Sky

ON VIEW Friday, June 10–Saturday, September 24
Landing Gallery, Galleries & Bookstore at Library Square, Roberts Library

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.

Allen Jarvis lives in Perryville, Arkansas, where he serves as branch manager of the Central Arkansas Library System’s Max Milam Library. He studied art and graphic design at Southern Arkansas University Tech in Camden and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

The CALS Galleries & Bookstore at Library Square often features artworks from the CALS permanent collection, and more artwork from the CALS collection can be seen at the Main Library, the Roberts Library of Arkansas History & Art, and any of our thirteen branch locations.

The Landing is located in the Galleries & Bookstore at Library Square in the CALS Roberts Library of Arkansas History & Art.

The Roberts Library is located at CALS Library Square in the River Market District of downtown Little Rock.
