New etchings and paintings from Brad Cushman, the director of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Art Gallery, will be on display at Boswell Mourot Gallery from June 10 to July 1. 

An opening reception for the exhibit, “Though False Intended True,” will be held from 6-9 p.m. Saturday, June 10, at Boswell Mourot Gallery, 5815 Kavanaugh Blvd. in Little Rock.

Landscapes, trees and their reflections, weathered surfaces, and textures have inspired this series of paintings and mixed media works.

“Cushman is drawn to the expressive use of color and texture,” said Kyle Boswell, owner of Boswell Mourot Gallery. “He manipulates paint with brushes, his fingers, and rollers used for relief printing. He wipes the surfaces of these paintings on paper and on board much like a printmaker hand wipes plates.”

The exhibit will also feature two new political satire paintings and gestural drawings inspired by Van Gogh’s peasant drawings.

Cushman received a Master of Fine Arts in painting from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He is the voice of “Picture This” on the Little Rock NPR stations, and he produces a television show entitled “Inside Art” in conjunction with University Television at UA Little Rock.
