Art from 21c Hotel

As promised, here are photographs of some of the art from the latest collection at the 21c Hotel in Bentonville.

Cutup (British) 2007. Reordered bus shelter advertising poster in light box by a collaborative group of European activists-artists.  Anti-Social Behavior Orders (started in 1998) were issued to juveniles for such infractions as begging, abandoning cars, noise pollution, littering and fare evasion.


Sea of Galilee (2008), Rina Castelnuovo (Israeli), color photograph.  Israeli men on the Israeli-Palestine border praying for rain and possibly, eternal peace.  Unintended selfie.


Strude #1, #16 and #17 (2008-09).  Trine Sondergaard (Danish).  Chromogenic prints on Dibond.  Girls in traditional costumes.  Headcoverings allude to both indigenous rituals and global debates about religious garb.


All Souls (Bielawa) 2006. Jane Hammond (American).  Gouache, acrylic, organza, mica, metal leaf, handmade paper, digital prints.


La Vatrina Cloud Collection (Venice) 2012.  Leandro Erlich (Argentinian).  Wood, glass, acrylic.  The second photograph shows a side view.


Malverk af malverki (2007-08). Hubert Noi Johannesson (Icelandic).  oil on canvas.  (Painting of a painting)


So there is today’s mini-tour of the 21c Hotel/Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas.  If you live in Louisville, Kentucky, or Cincinnati, Ohio, you can visit your own local 21c.  The art is always interesting.  Till next week, enjoy life.


Hi—I’m Candy P. I live in beautiful Northwest Arkansas and write this blog about quilting. I love the entire process of quilting from design to piecing and appliqué, to free-motion quilting on my Janome. I have been sewing since I was five and started quilting in 1991 with a group in NE Minnesota. We used cardboard templates and scissors and did everything by hand. I have since made traditional quilts, donation quilts and Quilts of Valor; I’ve done paper piecing and foundation quilting but now really enjoy improvisational piecing using scraps from my stash or my hand dyed fabrics as well as making art quilts. I am also currently trying to finish any and all unfinished projects. I am so far behind I can never die. I have always been a maker, a sewist and needleworker, running the gamut from hand embroidery to macramé, knitting, crocheting, crafts, book binding and mixed media projects. I have taught a lot of classes including fabric painting, origami, and calligraphy, Dancercise (who remembers that) and my own exercise classes. When I’m not in the garage dyeing fabric or in my studio, I’m at Zumba or walking on local trails and photographing art or whatever catches my eye. I currently belong to Crystal Bridges, AQS, The Quilt Show, NWA Modern Quilt Guild and the Van Go-Go Girls (a local art quilt group). I occasionally make it to the piano and the golf course and enjoy cooking with my husband and generally wreaking some kind of havoc with my daughter. You can read my previous blog at and here (previously but you cannot read my blog as northwind at The Quilt Show, apparently lost forever. I write about my current projects, mistakes and all, and often tell you what products I use (with no compensation). I am open to suggestions about blog posts and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about my projects or posts. Comment or email me.
