Vogel Schwartz Sculpture Garden

When most people think of Little Rock, they often think of its lush natural features. When we at Soirée think of Little Rock, we think of a rare tapestry of art, philanthropy and community — and yes, its lush natural features.

In honor of that tapestry, we set out to explore the various venues housing visual art in our fair city. What we found goes beyond long, gleaming halls and high ceilings and dives into the intimate showrooms tucked into sleepy streets.

Sketches and sculptures, pastels and portraits, international and neighborhood artists, you’ll find it all in our comprehensive guide to Little Rock art galleries.

Editor’s note: Many galleries are operating on nontraditional hours or by appointment only during the pandemic and require masks and social distancing measures. Check with each location before visiting.
