Heading to Nashville in January?
If you are, The Frist Art Museum will be featuring an exhibition by North Little Rock native LaToya Hobbs starting Jan. 26 and continuing through April 28.
Hobbs, a graduate of North Little Rock High School and UALR, is now a professor at the Maryland Institute College of Art and lives in Baltimore.
As an artist, Hobbs specializes in prints, among other things and exhibitions will feature her work there as well as woodblocks and mixed-media works.
The exhibition is titled, “Carving a New Tradition: The Art of LaToya M. Hobbs and is part of the Frist’s Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery.
"Though I'm presenting the work through the lens of my own experience, “Hobbs said in a release. “I champion the everyday woman while addressing the themes of motherhood, family, and the connection one has to the physical spaces they occupy."
The exhibition’s anchor piece is on loan from the Baltimore Museum of Art and titled, “Carving Out Time.”
The exhibition is sponsored in part by Blevins, Inc., Clay Blevins and the Gordon CAP Gallery Fund and Friends of Contemporary Art.
The Frist, which is a beautiful space, is located at 919 Broadway in downtown Nashville and for more, visit FristArtMuseum.org.
