ART: ‘Wash’ painting

“Mrs. Lucy’s Wash,” a painting by Little Rock artist Glenda McCune, is one of 80 works chosen by a panel of five artists and arts leaders from 425 entries for inclusion in the National Art Education Association’s Member Exhibition, according to a news release from the Arkansas League of Artists. The virtual display went up July 25 and is available online through Jan. 6 at arteducators.org/community/articles/968-2022-naea-member-exhibit.

McCune, a native of Hamburg and a retired Pulaski County Special School District teacher, is the only Arkansas artist with a work in the exhibition. The painting is part of her “Southern Scenes” series, depicting her life in southeast and Central Arkansas. Her work was most recently on display in a solo exhibit, “Southern Culture,” June 17-July 10 at the Acansa Gallery in North Little Rock.
