  • From the "Gates of Paradise"

The 23rd annual Arkansas College Art History Symposium, to be held Thursday and Friday this week at UALR, has much to recommend it. A talk on Turner, Italian art, Mayan art, editorial cartoons and, of special interest to those interested in the feminine, "Ambiguity in the Portrayal of Maids in Seventeenth-Century Dutch Genre Painting," by Jeanne Vockroth of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.

Try to make some of this free symposium, all in the Fine Arts Building room 161. Dr. Floyd Martin, 569-3182, is the contact person. Here's the schedule:
