CONWAY, Ark. (January 24, 2022) – The Windgate Museum of Art at Hendrix College (WMA) on Friday, February 4, 2022, will open its four winter exhibitions:

  • Delita Martin:Conjure is a collection of spiritual portraits of Black women as Martin imagines their essences filtering in and out of the physical and spiritual realms. The exhibition includes ten large-scale mono prints that draw from spiritual and oral storytelling to cultivate a visual language that is unique to Martin.
  • Walker Evans American Photographs comes to the WMA from the Museum of Modern Art in NYC and recreates the landmark 1938 exhibition that was the first time a single photographer was exhibited at MOMA. Considered the gold standard for everything else that followed in American photography, the work of Walker Evans remains as captivating and challenging as it was 83 years ago. Walker Evans American Photographs is based on an exhibition originally organized by The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Support provided by Art Bridges.
  • Make Me Feel Mighty Real is a gallery-sized installation by artist-in-residence Anthony Sonnenberg. Power, excess, decadence, and consumption permeate the installation and visitors will be engaged to participate in the artwork.
  • James Hayes will be on display in the Window Gallery. Hayes, revered Arkansas glass artist and a 1988 graduate of Hendrix, will be represented by his most recent large-scale glassworks. The Window Gallery, visible from the exterior of the building, is available to visitors day or night.

The exhibitions that open February 4 will continue through March 18, and are free and open to the public, as are related educational activities. 

“We have over 20 public programs planned in conjunction with these exhibitions,” said Mary Kennedy, director of the WMA. “Artist residencies, curator talks, film screenings, panel discussions, and student-led tours will be announced soon through the museum’s social media channels and our website.”
