Tim West was a college educated artist from Winslow. What should have been an auspicious start when at age eighteen he mailed off a print and had it accepted into the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art was thwarted by personal demons that led Tim to return to Winslow and live nearly anonymously.

LeeNora Parlor is a self-taught African-American folk artist from Arkansas. Her paintings are inspired by her ancestors and reflect glimpses into their lives and depict “who I really am.” Memories of her childhood spent on the outskirts of Camden, Arkansas drew her back as an adult to once again live in the country and paint.
Bump is a step back into time, into a rustic wood shop that has changed little over the past century. A fourth generation artist, Dallas Bump has been making chairs all his life in the tiny community of Bear, Arkansas. His family has kept up the tradition in the area since the 1870s, using techniques that were passed down from French ancestors. The Arkansas Arts Council named Dallas Bump the 2013 Arkansas Living Treasure for his life-long commitment to his craft.
