The East Arkansas Community College Fine Arts Center Gallery in Forrest City will present Steeling Magnolias, an exhibition of artwork by artist Polly Glass of Marion. The exhibition will run through Friday, April 1st.
Artist Polly Glass’ artistic inspiration and the focus of her art pieces can be summed up by one of the many inspirational quotes revealed in her favorite movie, Steel Magnolias. The famous movie quote, “I’d rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special,” is not only the driving force behind her artwork, but also her life.
Glass’ artwork has been displayed in private and public collections throughout the United States. Throughout her works of art, she primarily focuses on southern landscapes, abstracts, and southern pastimes. A school teacher by day, Polly Glass’ passion for painting and her self-taught skill of painting has developed and evolved over time.
A native of Little Rock, Arkansas, Polly graduated from the University of Mississippi with a Master’s degree in Education, and she currently lives in Marion with her husband Matthew and their son, Tapp Allen.
The EACC Gallery is located at 1700 Newcastle Road in Forrest City. Daily hours for the Gallery are Monday-Thursday from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and Fridays from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., or as scheduled for special group tours.
