A new exhibit examining “folklore, traditional stories and myths” is now on display in the Walton Arts Center’s Joy Pratt Markham Gallery.

The new show, curated by Cynthia Nourse Thompson, features works that “contemplate and examine the psychological, ethical and social implications embodied in storytelling through the lens of feminism, mythology, social history and literature.”

The show includes work by artists Kiki Smith, Amy Cutler, Beth Cavener Stichter, Julie Buffalohead, Anne Siems and Jonathan Thomas.

The gallery is open Monday-Friday from noon until 2 p.m., and for one hour prior to most Walton Arts Center performance.

Private gallery tours are also available. To schedule, call 479-571-2766.
