Pine Bluff, Arkansas — With a free, public reception from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, March 3, 2022, at ASC’s main building at 701 S. Main St., The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas (ASC) will celebrate its two latest exhibitions.
The reception is in support of shows by Memphis-based painter Carl E. Moore and North Little Rock-based mixed-media artist Meikel Church.
During the reception, the artists will be available to speak with visitors.
As part of ASC’s COVID safety measures, masks are required for all visitors ages 2 and older.
The event is sponsored by MK Distributors, and both exhibitions are sponsored by Relyance Bank.
Carl E. Moore’s “PAUSE. People, Places and Scenes” is on display now in the William H. Kennedy Jr. Gallery through Saturday, April 30, 2022.
Using flat imagery and bold colors, Moore’s paintings express social and ethical issues that face Black Americans on a day-to-day basis.
The artwork depicts “People living in their community, living their lives and in their spaces, as Black Americans living in a PAUSED position, waiting,” Moore explained. “Waiting for the next headline or event to happen. Waiting for the next justified police shooting or the next unexplained act of violence. Waiting for the most recent statistical data about high unemployment or the next random report on unequal healthcare for Black women. Waiting for the next apology for a recently discovered history of wrongdoing or waiting for gentrification, redlining, redistricting, or redevelopment to claim Black neighborhoods.”

Meikel Church’s collage collection “Was It Ever Real?” will be on view in the Ben J. Altheimer Gallery from March 3 through Saturday, June 4, 2022. Repurposes images from vintage magazines to make his works, Church recontextualizing them into imaginative scenes.
