Guest artist: Meikel Church

Meikel S Church is a North Little Rock, Arkansas based collage/mixed-media artist who challenges concepts of perception through his artwork. Meikel started creating collage in 2013 and quickly became addicted to the absurdity of taking found images, mostly from old books and magazines, and re-thinking the pre-existing image in another context.

Guest artist: Linda Lyke

My direction and voice as an artist is focused on meaning by analyzing the conditions of the natural world and the human interventions with both saving and destroying it. Using printmaking strategies and mixed media, I draw inspiration from my passion for nature through the articulation of ink and solvent to reveal my deep commitment to saving habitat and the diverse animals on the planet.

My recent exhibition at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center, Field Notes: When Taxonomy becomes Iconography, captures the spontaneous and immediate sense of discovery that stems from close observation of avian and megafauna in Amboseli National Park and the Maasai Mari in Kenya.
