A companion piece to UALR's Gallery I show, “Advancing Tradition: 20 Years of Printmaking at Flatbed Press,” opens today: "ROUX," in Gallery III, features work by African-American women printmakers, including Rabea Ballin, Ann "Sole Sister" Johnson, Delita Martin (of Little Rock) and Lovie Olivia. The show, curated by Danielle Burns for the Houston Museum of African American Culture, runs through Oct. 2. The artists and curator will take part in a panel discussion at 1:40 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 23, in the Stella Boyle Smith Concert Hall.

From the press release:

No good soup starts without a good roux, and like roux is the base of traditional American sauces, the African American matrilineal story is an integral base to American culture, more specifically the base of these artists own families.
