Department of Art + Design Offers Limited-Edition Calendar Featuring Local Work


JONESBORO – For the discriminating gift-giver with an eye for art, a new option is available this holiday season.

Arkansas State University’s Department of Art + Design is offering a limited edition 2024 calendar that features 12 prints by local artists and art faculty.

“Art + Design is excited to introduce an annual limited-edition calendar. This collaborative endeavor will enrich our ties to the community and allow us to expand our outreach programs,” noted Dr. Temma Balducci, professor of art history and department chair.

“Proceeds will be used towards our summer camps, community workshops and visiting artist program. Each year’s calendar will include works by different artists, so these will be collectible.”

The calendars are designed so that the artworks are attached by tabs and can be easily removed, framed, and hung without damage to the art. They are 11 by 12 inches closed and 22 by 12 inches open.

“Two of our faculty members, Cody Scrivner and Jessica Lambert, have worked with the various artists and spent long hours putting the calendars together,” she added. “They’ve done an incredible job.”

Scrivner added that one of the prints will be particularly interesting to long-time supporters of the department.

“We are thrilled that Evan Lindquist agreed to participate in our inaugural calendar,” explained Scrivner, an instructor in printmaking. “Evan is an internationally known printmaker and professor emeritus in Art + Design, and he was the first Artist Laureate for the State of Arkansas. His work titled ‘Floaters’ is featured with the January page.”

The 2024 calendar run is limited to 50. The finished calendars can be picked up starting December 11 in Room 103 of the Fine Arts Center on A-State’s campus. The sale continues through Jan. 4 or until all are sold on A-State’s Marketplace Mall, https://RedWolv.es/ArtCalendar2024.
