‘Rebranding’ reflects gallery’s commitment to diversity

Posted: September 29, 2017 at 1 a.m.

File Photo/DAVID GOTTSCHALK Sharon Killian, artist and president of the Art Ventures Board of Directors, promises “a number of exciting exhibitions are planned for 2018, and in 2019 Art Ventures will host the Women to Watch Exhibition of the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.”

In Sharon Killian's perfect world, the art gallery on the southwest corner of the Fayetteville square will look just like the developing region around it -- in all the community's "growing diversity." And the more that is true, she says, the more people from outside Northwest Arkansas will also see themselves reflected in the art and be comfortable in that space and in the community at large.
