Melissa Cowper-Smith

Natural Treatment


The Batesville Area Arts Council hosted Natural Treatment: an exhibition by Melissa Cowper-Smith March 5 -  April 20, 2019.


Melissa Cowper-Smith is a multimedia artist who uses projected video animation, digital printing, hand papermaking, collage, and painting to express forgetting and the passing of time. Her works depict natural and agricultural landscapes, objects, and domestic interiors. This exhibition features works on paper hand-made with medicinal plants, as well as other plants from the artist’s own garden; works are inspired by interviews she conducted with herbalists in the Ozark and Central River Valley regions of Arkansas.
