The EACC Gallery presents Whimsical and Quirky Drawings of Ike Garlington, an exhibition by artist Ike Garlington of Little Rock, Arkansas. The exhibit will run through Thursday, November 30th.
A lifelong resident of Arkansas, artist Ike Garlington was raised in Fordyce where he attended public school in Fordyce where there were no public school art classes at the time. He went on to study commercial art at Southwest Tech, now named Southern Arkansas University Tech, in Camden. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
In the Whimsical & Quirky Drawings of Ike Garlington exhibit, Garlington uses a variety of media, but mostly ink and colored pencil on paper. "People are funny and interesting. I see their faces in my imagination," said Garlington. "The intent is to create drawings that when viewed, might bring a smile or elicit a chuckle. I take my drawings seriously, but not myself," said Garlington.
Garlington's work has been displayed in numerous galleries and included in exhibits throughout the state and region. His works have also been included in the Arkansas Arts Council's annual Small Works on Paper statewide traveling exhibits.
The EACC Gallery is located at 1700 Newcastle Road in Forrest City. Daily hours for the Gallery are Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., or as scheduled for special group tours. There is no charge for admission. For more information, call 870-633-4480, ext. 352.
