More than 70 local artists have been selected to showcase their work at the Walton Arts Center’s upcoming Regional Art Show this fall.

The exhibit, titled “Our Art, Our Region, Our Time,” is set to open Oct. 6 and run through Nov. 14 at the Joy Pratt Markham Gallery inside the Walton Arts Center.

A total of 74 artists were selected for the exhibition out of over 200 artists who submitted work for consideration in the exhibition. Submissions were up 55% from a year ago, officials said.

“It was a joy to review the work and curate the 2022 exhibit,” said Kathy Thompson, longtime Fayetteville artist and exhibit curator. “As in 2021, the themes of isolation and self-reflection are still strong among the works, but this year the size and scale of the individual artworks are much greater. This exhibition will have a big impact on patrons.

The show will open with a reception starting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 6, which is free and open to the public.

The gallery is open weekdays from noon to 2:00 p.m. and one hour before any Walton Arts Center show and during intermission.

A full list of artists selected for the show is below.
