    Artwork @ Main
    January- February 2018 The Art of Despair: A Visual Study of Selected Writers in Their Own Words by Kiaya Luper

    Original artwork by artist Kiaya Luper will be on exhibit in the Community Room at the Main Library during the months of January and February.

    The exhibit is a homage to some of the most haunted authors and their brooding literary works, showing appreciation for writers who have created varying expressions of despair. Each work depicts an author and quote by that author: Albert Camus, Sylvia Plath, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Jean Paul Sartre, Hunter S. Thompson, Virginia Woolf, Charles Bukowski, William S. Burroughs, Aldous Huxley, Jack Kerouac, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Anne Sexton. Images of authors are paired with quotes using muted color, composition, and type to enhance the content.

    Kiaya Luper is an emerging artist who has already accumulated a variety of accomplishments. She is a progressive thinker with an interest in using traditional artistic mediums in innovative ways. Beyond this present effort, the artist aspires to work bigger and bolder. Her goal is to overcome a tendency to be limited in technique, to take more risks, to develop the skills required to improve her art, and to develop a distinct, personal voice.

    Kiaya earned a bachelor's degree in Studio Arts from the University of Arkansas Fort Smith. She is influenced most by muralists Etam Cru (a duo comprised of Sainer and Bezt). Her desire is to further her career in painting and to become a professional muralist.

    Artwork is available for viewing all library hours when meetings are not being held in the Community Room.

    For more information, please call the Main Library at (479)783-0229.
