Exhibits Examine Eyes, Hearts of Women

The UALR Gallery opens the new year with three exhibitions that look through the eyes and into the hearts of women.

The exhibition, “A Spectacle and Nothing Strange” by photographer Rebecca Sittler Schrock, will be on display in Gallery II from Wednesday, Jan. 12, to Sunday, Feb. 13.

“Schrock is driven by contrasts between insignificance and monumentality, humor and seriousness, surface and depth, the timeless and the timely,” said Brad Cushman, gallery director. “She utilizes the photography’s position between the appearance of reality and the suggestion of something more amorphous.”

“Women Call for Peace: Global Vistas” will be exhibited in Gallery I from Tuesday, Jan.  18, to Thursday, March 10. The collection features works by 13 different artists.

“The works in this exhibition are formidable in their disavowals of violence of all kinds – personal, political, domestic, and international,” Cushman said. “Their messages are all the more compelling because they reflect a range of religious beliefs, racial identities, and personal encounters with violence. The diversity of art and issues represented in this exhibition will appeal to a variety of audiences.”

Gallery III will feature “Home Girl,” a collection of works by UALR artist in residence, Liz Noble, from Wednesday, Feb. 16, to Friday, March 18. A reception for Noble will be held on from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 18, in the Fine Arts Building.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays, and from 2 to 5 p.m. Sundays. The galleries are closed on university holidays. Exhibitions are free and open to the public.
