Curator statement
As an artist and arts advocate in Arkansas, it is my pleasure to be able to work with artists Robyn Horn and Sandra Sell to create this exhibition for Joy Pratt Markham Gallery in Walton Arts Center. Both live fully as artists here in Arkansas using natural materials and studios full of power tools to create and reveal the unexpected and unique meaning hidden within.

The pairing of the artists and their differing studio practices reveals two interpretations of art and connection to the natural world. Wood is a key medium for both artists, enduring a journey of its own throughout creation – trees can handle the aggressiveness of fire and chainsaws, but glow after a gentle hand has polished and honed its surface.

Sandra finds inspiration in paint first, then pulls, molds and reveals sculptures out of wood, bridging her skills to her personal history and narrating her emotional being. Robyn releases the internal forms of wood, exploring the unbending strength by emphasizing uncharacteristic geometric imbalance. This exhibition highlights Sandra and Robyn’s studio practices and artistic excellence as much as it celebrates their friendship. We are excited to showcase their work together for the first time and invite you to enjoy, connect and absorb.

Joy Pratt Markham Gallery hours are 10 am until 2 pm weekdays and 60 minutes prior to show times and during show intermission.

Exhibitions in the gallery are free and open to the public.
