About The Exhibition
Artist-educator and scholar Adrienne Callander considers entrepreneurship a creative medium. In her artistic endeavors and publications, she explores the overlap of imagination, engagement, and dissent to pose the question of where an art practice begins and ends. This exhibition presents artifacts from a year spent caring for two Bluefaced Leicester sheep and a livestock guardian dog in the Ozark Mountains region of Northwest Arkansas. It is a rumination on a learning curve, a reflection on the acts of owning, belonging, and care. It is also an LLC that produces and sells pasture seed packs, yarns, field aprons, and other goods to, in turn, support local independent artists. Callander is Assistant Professor in the School of Art at the University of Arkansas. She has exhibited in the US, Canada, Germany, and Iceland, and presents nationally and internationally on intersections of entrepreneurship and social practice.
