 The Big Naturals
If you have not seen the only Patrick Dougherty installation in Arkansas, The Big Naturals, located adjacent to the Baum Gallery and created by the artist in the fall of 2014 with the help of over 300 community volunteers, it is well worth the trip.

Spring Season of Exhibitions

Madje Steber, suffering from memory loss, naps with her favorite stuffed kitty at Midtown Manor Assisted Living Facility in Hollywood, Florida. Dementia changed Madje, not just by the loss of memory, but by way of personality, making her more open, kinder, and, after the stage of violence which often occurs with dementia, more gentle. Madje is the mother of Maggie Steber. (from the series, Madje has Dementia)01/21-02/18    Finding Shelter: An Exhibition of Contemporary Fiber Art
