Hope High School art teacher Kendrick Adams will be the featured artist in a July 20 showing of his works at The Gallery, 105 Olive Street in Texarkana, Ark.
Utilizing multiple mediums including acrylic, watercolor, photography and indelible markers, Adams has created a body of works from his home and teaching life.
"I teach all of these media and more to my students," he said. "During classes, I create demonstration art for my students to understand how to use the media."
The showing will feature multiple works by Adams, including his acrylic "Daughter, Daddy Dance," which is a slice of life portrait of a young girl dressed for her first daughter-daddy outing in vivid colors against a soft, textured setting.
"When not in school, I create more mature work, both to keep in training and for personal pleasure and sale," Adams said.
A reception will open the showing from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on July 20.
The exhibition will continue through the month of August from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays.
