AAC faculty exhibit opens Friday

Endia Bumgarners The Art of Defense
  • Endia Bumgarner's "The Art of Defense"

The "Museum School Faculty Exhibition: Past and Present," an exhibition that will feature work in a variety of media by current faculty as well as work from the permanent collection by previous faculty, opens tomorrow, Jan. 11, at the Arkansas Arts Center.

The show is the third in a series of exhibits celebrating the Arts Center's 50th anniversary. The Arts Center first started offering arts classes in 1960, and when the new facility opened in 1963, the Arts Center's Museum School had a faculty of 13 artists teaching 32 classes to 300 students. (I was one of them!)

The museum school now has 50 artists teaching more than 80 classes to more than 600 students each quarter.

There will be a members' reception at 6-8 p.m. Jan. 17, which will also celebrate the opening of the 55th annual Delta Exhibition.

    We don't get to post all the jpegs of artwork on exhibit that come into the office, but they have more allure and tell you more about the work than what I can write about them. Hence this slideshow of work from shows opening tonight (Aug. 10) for 2nd Friday Art Night, 5-8 p.m. (see the To Do list for more information), and other openings and shows this weekend and in the days ahead.
