“Looking” by Rex Deloney

The fine art collection of Rex Deloney, a full-time art educator and chairman at Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, will be featured at the Leedell Moorehead-Graham gallery at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) as the first exhibit of the school year. Located inside the Hathaway-Howard Fine Arts building, a reception will be held Thursday, September 22 from 5-7p.m. to formally welcome the exhibit. The event is free and open to the public.

Deloney’s powerful images represent a message of hope, faith, joyous moments, and the struggles of life.  His painting approach is to explore the kaleidoscope of colors woven into meaningful, thought-provoking expressions about life, and the African-American experience.

Deloney holds a B.A. in commercial art from the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, Arkansas, and a M. Ed from Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington.  Deloney has received many honors and awards and he has been teaching for more than twenty years.  His works can be found at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, P.A.R.K. (Positive Atmosphere Reaches Kids), Little Rock Central High School, and the University of Arkansas Medical System.

For more information, please call 870-575-8236.
