Artists we've met

Saturday during ARTclicks! [and Artsfest] we had Virmarie Depoyster visit. Born in Porta Rico, Virmarie now lives in Little Rock and was lovely enough to grace us with a presentation of her art.

Varmarie paints with pastels on Wallis Museum Paper, VERY COOL! ... :) If you would like to see some of vibrant beautiful works they are hanging in the Art Lecture Hall [RM 143 of McCastlain Hall]

Her artists statement is no longer on the wall so you can read it here:

Thanks for reading the blog, :) see you kats later! :)

A Lot of Buzz

We are now IMPORTING our blog to FACE BOOK ... too futuristic for you, don't worry we can handle it! .. so for those of you reading this on facebook ... THIS IS A BLOG ENTRY comeing from ...

It's been a while, sorry for the long delay, we have been so busy here at the Baum Gallery with a great many things one of which is our current exhibit:

Pre-Columbian Artifacts: UCA's Reddick Collection

This exhibit is a collection of pottery [vessels, bowls, figures] dating back to 200BC that was donated to the university by Dr. and Mrs. Earl B. Riddick. It's pretty amazing stuff. As a part of this exhibit the Baum Gallery is allowing Dr. Allison Hall's museum studies class to come and work on the exhibit to help categorize and photography the pieces for better storage once the exhibit comes down.

we have also had a few film students in for documentary purposes, this exhibit is a big to'do!

here is a link to our face book 'fan' page with a PRESS RELEASE about the exhibit and of course to get a better look come see it in the Baum Gallery,

Mon-Friday 10am-5pm this exhibit will be up until October 29th!
