Langewis will be showing acrylic abstract paintings, watercolor paintings and textile art on silk. She has been recognized nationwide and has received a prestigious award through the Arkansas Heritage Council.

Maggard was born in the rural California town of Reedley in the Sierra Nevada foothills. The abundance of wildlife and scenic beauty instilled a deep appreciation for the wonders of the natural world, which inspired his photographing wildlife scenes and then drawing very realistic depictions.
