Who says adult nights out have to be dull?

Indulge in a relaxed night of spirited creation at the museum! Led by visual artist and guest instructor Roxy Erickson, we’ll enjoy an evening of guided artmaking paired with drinks and light appetizers.

This month, inspired by our exhibition Fashioning America: Grit to Glamour, we’re exploring ways to embellish accessories such as tote bags and silk scarves. Bring a friend and explore your creative side as we learn about acrylic fabric marbling, unwind, and just plain have fun.

No prior experience in art, painting, or collage is necessary to be part of this program—we welcome guests of all experience levels. All materials are provided, along with light appetizers and one glass of beer or wine. See you there!

Tickets are $30 ($27 for members), reserve your spot online or with Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 today.

About the Artist

Roxy Erickson

My work is a direct reflection of my experiences, both positive and negative, and a desire to create a shared emotional experience with my audience. The esthetic—flashy, florescent, over the top—is meant to incite a false sense of joy that is quickly overshadowed by a subtle melancholia. The viewer is lured by the glitzy esthetic but left with an unsettling feeling. Whether it’s working with society gendered, feminine materials or the fact that I primarily make portraits of the women in my life, being a woman impacts all aspects of my work. It is also extremely important to me to join the current cultural conversation and provide my own commentary on women’s rights and our place in the world.

Roxy is currently based in Bentonville, Arkansas. After graduating with her bachelor’s in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design, she went on to get her master’s in fine art from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2015.
