2013 Irene Rosenzweig Biennial Exhibition

We have exciting news to share! Daniel had two acrylic paintings selected for the 2013 Irene Rosenzweig Biennial Exhibition in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, at the Arts & Science Center. The show opens on November 14 and will run until December 30th. His two paintings – Coy’s Castle and Bouquet of Pipes will both be on display in the ASC’s gallery. Coy’s Castle depicts an old cotton gin in Coy, AR, east of England  and just south of Highway 165. Like most of Daniel’s work, it’s an acrylic painting on a masonite board. It is 16 by 34 inches, and was completed in 2011. Bouquet of Pipes is a painting of a gin in Altheimer, AR northeast of Pine Bluff across the Arkansas River. It is also an acrylic painting on a masonite board. It is 12 by 36 inches, and was completed in 2013.

Inspiration and Memories from Eastern Arkansas

Welcome to the first of a series (hopefully) of posts presenting different perspectives of one of Daniel’s recent paintings. This inaugural post is a family collaboration! The painting discussed is “Downtown Weiner” and the perspectives are from Daniel and my dad, Thomas Darter, who grew up in nearby Fisher, AR. Their writings give insight into the process and inspiration for the painting, and a historical glimpse of rice country life.  If you enjoy the post, please let us know! If you like the painting, you can see it on display until April 27th at Cantrell Gallery in Little Rock, AR.  

Featured Work – February 2013

Bouquet of Pipes Will be on display at Cantrell Gallery in Little Rock, Arkansas, starting March 8, 2013, as part of the “Structures II” exhibition.
