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.
