Sid Sargent Retrospective

"arkansas", "artists", "handmade"Katie Runnels4 Comments
If you're somewhere in Northwest Arkansas tonight... stop by DDP Gallery to view a very special retrospective of the life's work of a truly original outsider artist, Sid Sargent. Sadly, Sid passed away last year, but she was so well-loved...really a town legend...that her friends, family and collectors came together to share her work in commemoration of her artful life. I would give anything to be there tonight....Thursday the 5th, 5-8pm (runs through the 28th) at DDP Gallery-just off the downtown Fayetteville Square. 7 E. Mountain Street. ddpgallery.com
*Cool side note: Sid and her artist son, Eugene Sargent
are distant relatives of the great John Singer Sargent.
