Forty women from Arkansas currently have artwork being showcased in an online juried registry from the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts (ACNMWA).


Both artists with established resumés of creativity as well as up-and-coming artists are featured on the list.


“They also work with diverse media and explore a range of experiences, from nature and everyday life to history, memory, culture and identity,” said Matthew Bailey, Ph.D., the juror responsible for the selections, according to Fayetteville Flyer. “And each, in powerful, inspiring and productive ways, expands concepts about the world around us, signaling the importance and promise of art and culture in Arkansas.”
