Through May 30, the exhibition Looking at Our Landscape will be on display at Crystal Bridges at the Massey. More than 100 community members, from children aged 12 to adults over 80, submitted photographs to Looking at Our Landscape, a juried community photography exhibition that focuses on the natural beauty of Northwest Arkansas. (The photo at right is by Edward C. Robinson, The Flow.)
Some captured the sparkling waters of the Kings and Buffalo Rivers, the faceted rock formations at Tanyard Creek and the barns and pastures of back roads Arkansas. Others trained their lenses on culturally significant sites: Eureka Springs’ signal tree, a rural grave shelter and the grafittied remnants of Monte Ne resort.
To view all works submitted and download a map to selected sites, be sure to visit the web site for the exhibition, lookingatourlandscape.org. To see the exhibit in person, Crystal Bridges is located just off the downtown Bentonville Square, 125 W. Central Ave. 479-418-5700. The permanent museum is still under construction.
