Wilson is well known throughout the state and around the region for her photography, including her series of portraits titled Habitats, a collection featuring individuals photographed in their homes surrounded by their possessions. An Arkansas native, Wilson has shown her work all over, including at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock, and in Reno, Nevada, and Chicago, Illinois.

The new show, which Wilson says will be “greatest yet,” will feature four never-before-seen photographs from her Habitat series, as well as work from her Emoji paintings, her Warrior Women series, and her “Selfie Throne” installation.

Two of her Habitats photographs are currently included as part of the Personal Spaces exhibit curated by Allison Glenn currently on display at Crystal Bridges.

A reception for “Year of the Kat” is scheduled for 5-7 p.m. on Friday, March 15.

Gallery hours are Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., following the UAFS calendar. For a bit more information about the show, visit the Facebook event.
