Current Exhibit

Paper Routes

A statewide traveling exhibit sponsored by the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts

January 13 – February 26, 2022

The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) in Washington DC, for more than a decade, organizes a biennial international exhibition titled “Women to Watch”. In 2020, NMWA invited its outreach committees from around the globe to submit artist nominees to represent each committee for the “Paper Routes” exhibition. The Arkansas Committee, for the past 12 years, then organizes a statewide traveling exhibition of its nominees and it is presently traveling the state through February 2022. Fenix Arts (The Visual and Performing Arts Center at Fenix) is proud to host the last regional stop of “Women to Watch: Paper Routes” in Arkansas.

Artists at Fenix have been invited to exhibit alongside the regionally selected artists by Ms. Glen: Joli Livaudais (Little Rock), who was chosen to represent Arkansas in this international exhibition,  Kim Brewer (Little Rock), Linda Lopez (Fayetteville) and Suzannah Schreckhise (Fayetteville).

This statewide traveling exhibition sponsored by the Arkansas Committee of NMWA, is the sixth installment in the museum’s “Women to Watch” series. Below, Joli Livaudis, works in photographic images on Kozo paper and folds them (thousands of them) into beetles, using traditional origami patterns.
