Emily Wood, one of the National Museum of Women in the Arts "Women to Watch" nominees who has work on view in the atrium gallery of the Arkansas Studies Institute, opened a show of paintings on wood panels last Sunday at The Center for Art and Education in Van Buren. In an e-mail she writes, "Many of the subjects of my newest works are people that I know from the small Arkansas town where I grew up, which seems appropriate to display in a small old southern church." If you go to the Center's link, you'll see other examples of work in the exhibition, "A Person. A Place.", which will be on display through Feb. 24.
