It’s going to be a good weekend for new art on Mount Sequoyah this weekend.

That’s because two new art shows will host opening receptions on the campus of the non-profit event and retreat center on Friday night, March 26.

The first show is a reception for artist Shelby Fleming in Sequoyah Hall from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The show is titled Somewhere Between Chaos and Serenity, and features an installation of Fleming’s sculptural work. Masks will be required for the show. Here’s a bit more information.

In addition, Fenix Fayetteville will present a show titled Reflections of the Black Experience in Mount Sequoyah’s Miller Hall on Friday, also from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The show will feature work by Arkansas artists and The 1619 Project by The New York Times including Kinya Christian, Nick Palmer, Leona Hunter-Wade, Marzelle Williams, Brian Elenbarger, Jim Johnson, Gregory Janicke, Shelly Mouber, Karen Wagaman, and others. After the reception, this show will remain on display through May 1.
