This exhibit invites you to rethink your junk drawer and maybe even your trash.
Artists John Salvest and Les Christensen transform the ordinary into extraordinary, turning what most think of as trash or junk into thought-provoking and beautiful sculptures and installations.
Both artists work in education at the Arkansas State University in Jonesboro; Salvest is a Professor of Art, and Christensen is the Director of the Bradbury Art Museum. Christensen and Salvest have exhibited throughout the South and beyond in group and solo exhibitions.
Out of the Ordinary highlights two well-known Arkansas artists who fit well within AMoA’s collections policy, particularly as Christensen exhibited two sculptures in the 18th September Competition in 2005.
Opening Reception and Member Preview: Friday, March 4, 6-8pm
