The Batesville Area Arts Council is pleased to present Kindred, an exhibition by Adrienne Callander, at the BAAC Gallery on Main, September 1 - October 3, 2020. This is an interactive exhibition featuring one of Callander’s new projects, #littlesweaterhug, the artist’s socially engaged knit-based response to limited physical contact in the early days of Covid-19. Callander explaines, “In April of this year, as a lack of physical contact due to the COVID-19 shutdown started taking its toll, I asked rather whimsically if anyone could use a #littlesweaterhug. I was surprised by the number of requests!” To date, little sweater hugs have traveled to San Francisco; Boulder, CO; Harlem, NY; Louisville, KY; Starkville, MS; Tuscaloosa, AL; and throughout Northwest Arkansas, and now - Batesville. Stop by the gallery to see a collection of little sweater hugs, along with more of Callander’s work. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
This exhibition is sponsored by First Community Bank.
