'Home Seekers' Art Exhibit on Display in Mullins Library
An art exhibit by Samuel Gray is on display on the lobby level of Mullins Library through the fall semester. Home Seekers is a collection of charcoal and digital illustrations about the journey of those who seek protection, rest and belonging — the refugee.
"As a child, I used art to share what I wasn't able to share," said Gray. "What started out as self-expression soon became a form of communication with others. I strive to reveal the light in the darkness, and sometimes you have to see the bad to understand the good. Art can be used to open our eyes to the unknown and give us a renewed lens of the world and ourselves."
Gray is a local visual artist. He has lived and worked professionally as an artist and designer in Northwest Arkansas for over 10 years.
"I hope that my work gives people the chance to sit, to contemplate, and to experience a wider variety of emotions," he said.
