“Both Ends Burning” Artist Talks About His Exhibit

Michael Shaeffer, the artist who created the paintings featured in the “Both Ends Burning” exhibit at Arkansas Tech University’s Norman Hall Art Gallery, offered a gallery talk on Wednesday, Sept. 8.

A native of Long Island, New York, Shaeffer has resided in Little Rock since 2010. According to the artist’s statement posted alongside his exhibit, his memories of the New York City club scene in the 1990s and 2000s are the inspiration for much of his work.

“Both Ends Burning” is available for viewing in Norman Hall, 203 West Q Street in Russellville, through Friday, Sept. 24.

The gallery is typically open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays (excluding holidays), but hours may vary due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Those wishing to schedule a visit to the gallery may call (479) 964-3237.
