Inside Art is a program that allows you to observe and learn about the artistic process. UA Little Rock Gallery Director/Curator Brad Cushman joins the artists, often in their studios, where they discuss inspiration, conceptualization and process. Often the artist will explain and demonstrate their technique.
Brad received his M.F.A. in Painting from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He’s curated a variety of exhibitions including Face to Face: Artists’ Self Portraits from the Collection of Jackye and Curtis Finch Jr. for the Arkansas Arts Center.
Here is a sampling of some of our Inside Art programs
Delita Martin – Printmaking — Little Rock Artist Delita Martin’s work was selected for the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art’s exhibit, State of the Art – Discovering American Art Now. The exhibit brings together the work of more than 100 artists from across the country. Delita allowed us into her Black Box Press studio several years ago to talk about her artistic process for our program Inside Art. You can watch the entire program in the link below.
