The painting, After a Summer Rain, was recently donated by Ed and Dorothy Ann Stevenson to be displayed in the Ouachita Center on the campus of the University of Arkansas Rich Mountain. The painting was commissioned by a nationally known local artist, Tyrone Lewis, and was exhibited in the 2007 Paint America Top 100 Art Competition. The painting illustrates a scene in the town of Cove, Arkansas and exemplifies the rural community where Ed Stevenson was born and raised.
The Stevenson family chose to gift the painting for display to honor the artist’s talent and to illustrate the beauty of Polk County through art. The framed artwork is on display in the Stevenson Gallery located in the main corridor of the Ouachita Center.
