NATCHITOCHES – The Texarkana Regional Arts and Humanities Center announced its selection for their 30th Anniversary Art Competition and a piece by Michael Yankowski, professor of art at Northwestern State University, was selected from over 300 national entries. Juror Sean Fitzgibbons is the director of the Meadows Museum of Art at Centenary College, Shreveport.
The work entitled “Eternity: Everything All At Once” is constructed of mahogany. It features hand built metal spider lily flowers, a carved heron skull, and a variety of other fabricated components. Standing 43 inches tall, it expresses ideas about life, death and the eternal, Yankowski explained.
