The Pine Bluff Art League will meet at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Services Center, 211 W. Third Ave.

Emily Wood, Little Rock artist and instructor at the Arkansas Arts and Science College, will demonstrate her technique of using the grain of wood as an integral part of paintings. She will also show a collection of her work.

Wood studied art at Texas Christian University, the University of Reading, England, and Ouachita Baptist University, from which she graduated magna cum laude in 2004 with a bachelor of arts degree in graphic design. In 2011, she completed a master of arts degree in painting at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. She worked in New York City for the artist and architect Rebecca Alston and studied painting at the Art Students’ League of New York. She taught art in the Little Rock School District and is currently a painting and drawing instructor at the Arkansas Arts Center Museum School.

Wood has been accepted into and won awards in juried exhibitions throughout the South. She has also shown in several galleries and exhibits in Arkansas, and her work can be found in private collections across the United States. She has been accepted into the annual Delta Exhibition at the Arkansas Arts Center for the past two years. In 2011, she was selected to participate in the statewide traveling exhibition, “Women to Watch 2011,” sponsored by the Arkansas Committee for the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Currently, Wood’s work can be found at the Heights Gallery in Little Rock and at www.emilywoodart.com.

Information about upcoming workshops and a countywide juried photography contest and exhibition will be part of the program. Members are reminded to bring a painting for the monthly contest. Winners have the opportunity to display their work at three local venues.

Refreshments will be served. Door prizes will be given and a painting raffle will be part of the Sunday meeting, according to a spokesman for the league.

The public is invited. Visitors and new members should park on the Fourth Avenue side of the building and enter at the door west of the main entrance.
