Hearne Fine Art

Proprietor Garbo Hearne has been in the African-American art business for 16 years, spotlighting 20th century artists -- Elizabeth Catlett, Dean Mitchell, George Hunt, Kevin Cole, TWIN, Benny Andrews, John Biggers, Samella Lewis among them -- and early American masters like Henry Ossawa Tanner, Edward Bannister and Robert Duncanson. Hearne has a good eye for art, a passion for education and has introduced Arkansas's uncelebrated folk artists, like Alonzo Ford of Helena/West Helena, to a new audience. Pyramid Art & Books, at the same address, also sells books by African-Americans: fiction, non-fiction, art-related and so forth. No art lover should miss this gem, purposely located on the edge of a largely African-American residential neighborhood (and adjoining husband Dr. Archie Hearne's medical clinic).
