The Arkansas State University-Beebe Art Department is featuring Life in Scale in an exhibit through Friday, Jan. 24. In addition, a reception for the contributing artists will be held Jan. 24 from 6-8 p.m. at the England Center.
Life in Scale presents scale modeling works that have
been built and painted by members of the central Arkansas scale modeling community. Scale modeling is the process of creating a physical relationship of a historical or fictional object or person. The artists represented in this show have had their works displayed in shows and museums nationwide, as well as Europe. Many of the artists have won awards at national shows.
Scale modeling subjects may include military vehicles, automobiles,
horror and fantasy figures, dioramas, space vehicles and science fiction
pieces. The art pieces are constructed of various mediums, including styrene plastic, resin, and wood, and have been painted with acrylic, lacquer, oil and enamel paints with pastels and pigments.
ASU-Beebe is the only two-year college in the state of Arkansas that offers an Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) degree. The AFA degree has an emphasis
in 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.
Life in Scale may be viewed at the England Center Art Gallery, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The gallery is located at the corner of Center and Orange Streets in Beebe. For more information, call (501) 882-8913.
