The UALR Gallery opens the new year with three exhibitions that look through the eyes and into the hearts of women.
â€śSchrock is driven by contrasts between insignificance and monumentality, humor and seriousness, surface and depth, the timeless and the timely,â€ť said Brad Cushman, gallery director. â€śShe utilizes the photographyâ€™s position between the appearance of reality and the suggestion of something more amorphous.â€ť
â€śWomen Call for Peace: Global Vistasâ€ť will be exhibited in Gallery I from Tuesday, Jan. Â 18, to Thursday, March 10. The collection features works by 13 different artists.
â€śThe works in this exhibition are formidable in their disavowals of violence of all kinds â€“ personal, political, domestic, and international,â€ť Cushman said. â€śTheir 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.â€ť
Gallery III will feature â€śHome Girl,â€ť 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.
