Harlow in TRAHC International Art Exhibition

Announcements; Faculty & Staff »
By Trina Harlow, Assistant Professor of Art, Art Education »

Dr. Trina Harlow, assistant professor of art education and fibers instructor, had two fiber arts pieces accepted for the Texarkana Regional Arts and Humanities Council’s 33rd Annual Adult Juried Exhibition. The 76 accepted artists exhibiting 100 artworks were from 19 states and 2 countries, with only 23 of the artists being from this region. Dr. Harlow had two pieces accepted for the exhibition. She attended the August 6th opening reception, held in Texarkana, Texas at the TRAHC Gallery and sponsored by the Yates Foundation, representing the UCA Department of Art and Design. “Covid Cock,” a peacock-themed duster, was made with needle felting, indigo fiber dyeing, and improvisational embroidery with some acrylic painting. “Covid Cerebrations,” a bird and nature hood, was made with improvisational embroidery, needle felting, and weaving. The theme of both pieces portrayed the person Dr. Harlow shared with the public during the 2020 pandemic year, with the insides of both pieces sharing private thoughts and feelings about COVID.
