The Bank of Fayetteville has been a supporter of the arts and Arkansas athletics since its inception. These two cultural ideas were always a top priority for the leaders of the bank and 30 years later still play a significant role in the belief system of The Bank of Fayetteville.
In addition to sponsoring art exhibits, the bank now hosts monthly book signings in the lobby of the Main Branch on the historic square. Today Thursday, September 7 Art and athletics, a rather odd couple, will converge from 5pm-7pm as Bank of Fayetteville hosts “Arkansas Sports Night” in conjunction with “First Thursday”.
Authors Brian Rendl, Evan Demirel and J.B. Hogan will be onsite to personally autograph their books and Lisa Sharp of Nightbird Books will have books available for purchase.
Brian Reindl, a successful real estate investor wrote the screenplay and produced Greater: The Brandon Burlsworth Story; Evan Demirel is a well-known sports writer and just published his new book African-American Athletes in Arkansas: Muhammad Ali’s Tour, Black Razorbacks & Other Forgotten Tales and J. B. Hogan, a noted Arkansas author, will promote his book about Arkansas baseball players entitled Angels in the Ozarks.
To complete the artistic circle, the featured visual artist for September is photographer Jeremy TenHaken. His show, “A Tribute to Tenacity” honors the planet’s oldest living things: the Bristlecone Pines. Spending eleven days in the high desert in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of South East California, Jeremy captured incredible images of the life and regeneration of these historic trees.
Since 1987, the Bank of Fayetteville has served the Northwest Arkansas area. Currently, they have 8 branches in Fayetteville, Prairie Grove, and West Fork. They continue to support ideals important to our unique community.
