  • John Harlan Norris' "Opponent"

Arkansas State University professor John Harlan Norris says his work "explores the possibilities and limitations of our daily occupations at a time in which we frequently change jobs, balance multiple roles and cannot easily delineate between private and public life.”

You can see what he means at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, which today opens an exhibition of 19 of his portraits, "Occupants," in Gallery III of the Fine Arts Center. Norris' faces are wrapped in symbols of the things that define us — flags for the diplomat, a hog's nose and football helmet — with a little bric-a-brac thrown in.

Norris will gave a gallery talk at 3 p.m. Feb. 28. The show runs through March 21.
