He took one art course a semester for three semesters, and with 90 hours as a history major, changed over to the art program. His works are found in many private and public collections. "I have been involved in the objectification of my thoughts and feelings since about the age of thirteen, at first musically, and now visually. My work is a reflection of my love and appreciation of places on earth which, by simply being there, have made me feel better about myself and the world in general. Just as songwriters write songs which tell about feelings or tell stories about their lives, my artwork is a chronicle of all those aspects of my life which I deem worthy of holding on to."

Sammy Peters
Born in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1939, Peters has lived in Little Rock, Arkansas since 1944. He studied at the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville and Little Rock, at the Arkansas Art Center of Arts and Drama, and with the San Francisco Mime Troupe. His work was exhibited in the Arkansas Arts Center’s annual Delta Show, a competitive exhibition open to artists in the region, in 1962. His work has been shown in many competitive exhibitions, solo exhibitions in Santa Fe, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Houston galleries, and the Mid-America Arts Alliance/NEA Fellowship in 1992. "Sammy Peters is one of the most important artists living and working in Arkansas today…His paintings, grounded in abstract expressionism, the avantgarde style of his adolescence, has evolved into a deeply felt dialogue of integrity and experimentation. The paintings are moody and emotional, expressed with muted colors, strong brush work, accident, collage elements and a fiercely-wrought beautiful finish." -- Townsend Wolfe-Arkansas Art Center

Stout (B.F.A, Washington University, M.F.A., Indiana University) came to the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville in 1980 as chairman of the art department. He previously taught in St. Louis at Washington University and Fontbonne College. Stout’s work has been exhibited widely in the United States and internationally for more than twenty years. The upper lobby of the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville showcases a full-sized wall mural Stout painted in 1993-94, and he illustrated Louise Rozier’s translation of "The Little Jesus of Sicily." Stout uses oil paints, pastel chalks, ink and acrylic in creating his work. An ongoing theme in his work reflects his fascination with the human figure, portraying a man’s inner journey through the details of his everyday life. "You could be painting not only a person but a Styrofoam cup, and if you look at it long enough, you see yourself."
