Elizabeth Nobel, A Great Escape
  • Elizabeth Nobel, "A Great Escape"

The University of Central Arkansas's Baum Gallery gets its fall season off to a start tomorrow with three major exhibitions: “Connections: The Fifteenth Year,” artwork representative of all studio courses taught at UCA; “More than a Mold: Contemporary Slip Cast Ceramics,” a group show of ceramic sculpture by eight national artists, including visiting artist Joe Page; and “cloud control: the devastation of an anchor,” an installation by faculty member Carrie A. Dyer.

"Connections" will feature work by 27 current and former UCA art faculty members and professional artists (including Elizabeth Nobel) in ceramics, 3-D contemporary media, drawing, graphics, painting, photography, printmaking/illustration, sculpture and illustration.

"More than a Mold" is a juried exhibition that coincides with the university's new slip-casting course. Visiting artist Page, who earned a MFA in ceramics from Alfred University in 2008, said he hopes his work places "the viewer in a place of both comfort and uncertainty.”

Dyer presents a multi-media installation that she expects viewers to experience differently. She uses installation to communication "emotions too painful to put into words," she said in a press release.

New gallery director Barclay McConnell expects the diverse lineup to have wide appeal. There is an artists' reception from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15. The gallery will celebrate its 15th anniversary with a reception 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 7.
