The Baum Gallery on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas has opened its spring season with exhibitions of photographs, paper constructions, medical illustrations and an installation piece, and the shows make a visit to Conway a must. Oh, to be a fulltime arts writer, not having to make do with jpegs!

Black and white photographs of figures in and near bodies of water make up the exhibition "Deb Schwedhelm: Whispers from the Sea." Most of the the Florida photographer's subjects are children; there is a dreamy effect to the photos.

"Recollections Transformed" is an interactive art installation inspired by "Learning to Love You More" project by actress, artist and film director Miranda July. July will be in Conway in February. The installation is an art assignment to be included in Hendrix’s online web project, Guiding Us to You.

The Baum Gallery, in the west wing of McCastlain Hall, is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.
