ASU-Beebe hosts art exhibit

The Arkansas State University–Beebe Art Department is currently featuring the artworks of J.M. Hornbrook in an exhibit called “The Aesthetics of Decay and My Social Insecurity.” 

The exhibit will be on display through the end of September in the England Center Art Gallery. 

Hornbrook is a print maker and multidisciplinary artist with an emphasis in intaglio, lithography, silkscreen, relief and experimental photography. As an assistant professor of printmaking at the University of Central Arkansas, she teaches print, drawing and 2D art. She is an avid member in multiple national printmaking councils and has shown work internationally in Rome, South America and Spain. 

Hornbrook’s passion is working in the tactile qualities of printmaking and passing on the alchemic knowledge that lies in its traditional techniques through a contemporary approach. 

ASU-Beebe is the only two-year college in Central Arkansas that offers an associate of fine arts (AFA) degree. The AFA degree has an emphasis in vocal music or instrumental music, theater, graphic design or creative arts enterprise. This degree is a comprehensive, two-year curriculum designed specifically for transfer toward a bachelor’s degree in fine arts. 

The England Center Art Gallery exhibits works of art by students and featured artists throughout the academic year. The gallery, located at the 201 N Orange Street in Beebe, has free admission and is open to the public 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
