Eyes open

Posted By on Fri, Oct 22, 2010 at 2:53 PM

I've been busy today with other stuff; sorry for the quiet blog. Here are some things to do this weekend.

Head over the UALR's Fine Arts Building Saturday morning (low traffic!) to see the new exhibit, "Nosotras: Portraits of Latinos," a show curated by the director of the Carlsbad Museum and Art Center in New Mexico.

If you're in Fayetteville and maybe more interested in design than football (god forbid), go to Room 303 in the UA Fine Arts Center's to hear "Rewiring the Designer's Brain," a lecture by Drawbackwards creative firm founder Ward Andrews, at 10 a.m. Saturday morning (Oct. 22).

Go hear Tom Spleth speak at the Arkansas Arts Center at 6 p.m. Sunday night (Oct. 24) and dine with the artist afterward. Spleth is a North Carolina potter who makes twisty vessels and animal-stenciled cups. If you're a Friend of Contemporary Craft member, it will cost you $15; if not, it's $20. Reserve a ticket at focc@arkarts.com.

Catch some exhibits that will go down at the end of the month: "Ebrahimifar" at Boswell-Mourot Fine Art, an exhibit by four siblings native to Iran; "L'Esprit de la Fleurs and the People I Have Known," at Cantrell Gallery; "95% in the Moment," work by three photographers at Gallery 26; and, at UCA's Baum Gallery in Conway, the "Baum MFA Biennial Competitive Exhibition," paintings by recent graduates, and the installation "Aqua Bomb."
