Hendrix College proudly shares up-and-coming artists

Hendrix College proudly shares up-and-coming artists

CONWAY, Ark. -- Thursday night at Hendrix College will prove to be one that people will be buzzing about for the next month. Hendrix's 2011 Senior Art Majors are hosting the opening reception of their senior show from 4 - 6 pm. The show will run from April 7 until after graduation on May 14 in the Trieschmann Gallery at Hendrix.

The arrangement of the show allows for free flowing movement from the moment the viewer steps in. Each body of work is contained within its own area, with the exception of the sculptural elements. However, their separation adds to the singularity of each piece, whereas the other works are more of a cohesive body meant to be taken in together. Eight very different artists are feature in the show.

Despite the popularity of the photographic medium, there is a large diversity of work embodied by the photographs. Alyssa Moran has created a visual diary, in a style reminiscent of Nan Goldin's work.

Tanaia Esaw: America's Next Top Model?

Tanaia Esaw: America's Next Top Model?

By Dawon Johnson (published in The Vision Magazine Spring Issue)

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Arkansas has produced two “America’s Next Top Model” winners, and it could be home to a third. Well, if the show is on-air for 10 more years. That’s when Tanaia Esaw, an eight-year-old model from Little Rock, will be eligible for the highly rated reality show.

“I think I’m the best model. When I come out on the stage everybody screams my name,” says Esaw. “I understand when I’m doing good, because people scream out ‘go on girl’ and ‘you better work that stage.’ Modeling makes me feel very happy. It is my life.”

Esaw, a second-grader at Romaine Elementary School, got her start modeling in the summer 2009 at the inaugural Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW). Since her debut, she has appeared in several fashion shows, a commercial and the Martin Luther King Jr. Marade.
