The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas, 701 S. Main St., will present The Women Are Stronger: An Installation by Margo Duvall.
The community is invited to join the center for a free reception with refreshments as they celebrate Duvall’s installation of photography from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8. Artist remarks begin at 5:30 p.m.
The work will be on exhibit in the Simmons Gallery at the arts center from Feb. 8 through April 21. The exhibition is sponsored by Simmons Bank.
Duvall is an associate professor of photography at Henderson State University at Arkadelphia. Duvall earned her bachelor’s degree in studio art from Humboldt State University before earning a Master of Fine Arts degree in photography from San Jose State University, according to a news release.
“Her photographs have appeared in dozens of exhibitions, including the Arkansas Arts Council’s 2017 Small Works on Paper, and the Arkansas Art Center’s 59th annual Delta Exhibition,” according to the release.
Duvall uses the process of cyanotype to imprint photographic images on a variety of objects including, in this exhibition, fabric.
“The process of cyanotype dates back to 1842 and was an early form of duplication and used to make blueprints (hence the blue cast of the image),” according to the release.
