UALR art professor Floyd Martin will talk about Arts and Crafts designer William Morris at 6 p.m. tonight at the Arkansas Arts Center; there will be a 5:30 p.m. reception first. The talk is part of the Art of Architecture series sponsored by the Central Arkansas Chapter of the AIA, the Arts Center and the UA Fay Jones School of Architecture.

Morris made beautifully stylized patterns for textiles, wallpaper, furniture and books. Martin researched the British designer while on sabbatical in 2010, where he visited Morris' Red House, a collaboration between Morris and architect Philip Webb in 1860, and another property, the Standen House. Both are part of the British National Trust.

Morris' motto: "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."
