BEEBE, Ark. (ASU-Beebe) - The Arkansas State University-Beebe Art Department will be displaying “Delta in Blue” artwork by Beverly Buys until Friday, March 6 at the England Center Art Gallery.  She will also present a gallery lecture on Thursday, Feb. 26 at noon. 

Artist Beverly Buys technical approach to the photographs in “Delta in Blue” is unique and used as a way to support the dreamlike feeling of a memory and a historic narrative of the disappearing way of life in the Arkansas Delta. The work speaks to the endangered art of traditional photographic processes as well.

“The Arkansas Delta is a place I have been driving through my whole life but it took many years for it to become my destination,” said Buys. “I had to become interested in its history before I could begin to appreciate its beauty.”
