The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will host a photography exhibit by Donna Pinckley, professor of art at the University of Central Arkansas, from March 18 to April 26.
The exhibit, “Sticks and Stones,” will be on display in the Focus Gallery at the Windgate Center of Art and Design on the UA Little Rock campus. Pinckley will talk about her work at 6 p.m. Monday, April 15, in the Windgate Center of Art and Design Room 101.
Pinckley’s work has dealt with the human condition and the intimate relationship between the subject and her audience and has evolved into her current body of work that deals with racism. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography from Louisiana Tech University and a Master of Fine Arts in photography from University of Texas at Austin.
Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in over 200 solo and juried shows including a recent exhibit with The Royal Photographic Society International Photography Exhibition 160 in Bath, United Kingdom. She is also included in several public collections, such as the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, Louisiana, the University of Veracruz at Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico, and the Photographic Collection at the Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas at Austin.
In 2017, Pinckley was awarded an honorarium at the Houston Center for Photography’s Members Show. In 2016, she was the first recipient of the Josephine Herrick Photography Award for combining photography with social justice and was selected for Photolucida’s Critical Mass Top 50 exhibition.
The Focus Gallery is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, and 2-5 p.m. Sunday.
