In celebration of Black History Month, the Arkadelphia Arts Center will be presenting “Wandering Spirit: African Wax Prints.”
This exhibit is a tribute to the century-old handmade designs and patterns on textiles that originated in Indonesia and were copied and industrialized by Europeans and exported to Africa. The beautiful pieces in the show are created on natural material using the lost wax process known as Batik.
“We are looking forward to our first showing in the Arts Center of the Batik art form. This exhibit is beautiful and educational.”
Tools using this creative process will be a part of the show. The exhibit opens February 6 and closes March 2. The community is invited to a reception in the Arts Center on Thursday, February 8, 5-6p.m. The Arkadelphia Arts Center is free admission.
