  • DONATED: "Dancing with the Misty Moon" is one of eight paintings donated to the Child Study Center.

Eight paintings by Little Rock artist Jane F. Hankins, who is known widely for her whimsical ceramic figures of women, have been donated to UAMS' Child Study Center.

John and Patti Bailey (Bailey Properties) made the gift to honor Betty Everett, an assistant professor in UAMS' Department of Psychiatry, and the children of the Child Study Center. The paintings have Hankins' joyous fantasy touch, and the donors and the Child Study Center hope they'll help make their young patients comfortable and better able to cope with their fears.

The Child Study Center, on the campus of Arkansas Children's Hospital, treats children and adolescents for behavioral, emotional and other problems.
