Women to Watch Art Series Comes to ATU

The Arkansas Women to Watch Series 2019 “Heavy Metal Exhibit Tour,” organized for travel by the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts (ACNMWA), will open at Arkansas Tech University’s Norman Hall Art Gallery on Monday, Feb. 11.

Michele Fox, Amanda Heinbockel, Robyn Horn and Holly Laws are the featured artists in the show. They were selected by ACNMWA guest curator Matthew Smith of the Arkansas Arts Center.

The Women to Watch exhibit program was developed by the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) to feature underrepresented and emerging women artists from the states and countries in which the museum has outreach committees. NMWA curators select the theme. Local arts professionals curate submissions to the national museum.

Norman Hall Art Gallery will host a reception and gallery talk for the exhibit at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 20. The event will be free and open to the public.

The ACNMWA exhibit will be available for viewing weekdays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at 203 West Q Street in Russellville through March 8.
