The ASP Comes to the Natural State

Artists from the Natural State announce their banding together as the Arkansas Society of Printmakers. (Little Rock, AR, January 11, 2012) The Arkansas Society of Printmakers are proud to announce their recent formation. Comprised of artists and supporters of the art form of printmaking from across the state, the group seeks to generate greater excitement and appreciation for printmaking as a unique art form in the state of Arkansas and beyond. The ASP is committed to maintaining the integrity and identity of printmaking among artists by sharing skills and knowledge through mentorship, professional critique, collaboration, camaraderie, exhibition, and portfolio exchange opportunities.  With a successful inaugural group exhibition under their belts, the group is looking forward to an exciting 2012 season.

Yearly memberships are available at both the student ($30) and non-student level ($50). If interested in joining the Arkansas Society of Printmakers, please contact Diane Harper at for more information. Business and community supporter memberships are available as well.

-Wanda Ewing received an individual artist grant from the Pollock Krasner Foundation and was curated by arts editor Charlotte Strick into the article Women By Women featured in the Winter Edition of the Paris Review.

-Beauvais Lyons chaired a panel session earlier this year on “The Art of Pranks” focused from an article in the December issue of ARTnews. In “The Joke’s On Us,” critic Ann Landi discusses the scholarship of pranks in art of the past century, citing artists and art movements including the Dadists, Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol, and others. Lyons’ session at the College Art Association conference held in New York City included presentations by five artists and art historians, and offered a case for Prank Theory as the basis for reconsidering the history of modern and contemporary art. us/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=the-jokes-on-us
