UALR hosts Ted Grimmett photography exhibit

Ted Grimmett's "Mirror Glass Construction"

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock Art Gallery will host an exhibit featuring the photography of Ted Grimmett.

The exhibit, “Surface Tension,” will be on display July 5-28 in Gallery II in the UALR Fine Arts Building. The work represents Grimmett’s thesis exhibition for his Master of Art degree from UALR. A reception for Grimmett, UALR print shop supervisor, will be held Friday, July 15, from 4-6 p.m.

Grimmett photographs objects and sites that exhibit transparent, translucent, and reflective surface properties. These images provoke questions about the tension between surfaces, how they interact to reveal and withhold detail, and how they present to the eye.

The artist thinks of these objects as artifacts found in situ and his photographs as affirmations of a constructed, found, and realized world that is often unseen or unrecognized.

The gallery is also holding an exhibit featuring the artwork and artifacts of the nomadic Bedouin people of Saudi Arabia. The exhibit, “Traditional Arts of the Bedouin,” is on display until Aug. 5.

The gallery is located in the UALR Fine Arts Building. Summer hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday or by appointment.
