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.

"Kirsten Kindler: Paper Construction" features the Virginia artist's hand-cut large-scale collages on mylar. Kindler creates her wall-hung collages from multiple layers of magazine images.  

You were wondering about the blood and guts mentioned in the headline, weren't you? Baum is exhibiting work by 18 the top U.S. medical illustrators in "Drawing Blood and Guts: The Best of Contemporary Medical Illustration." Medical illustrator Alexandra Baker of DNA Illustrations, in collaboration with the Baum Gallery, curated the show. Illustrators in the show include James Archer, Molly Borman-Pullen, Todd Buck, Gary Carlson, Jennifer Fairman, Rob Flewell, Craig Foster, Michele Graham, Bonnie Hofkin, Craig Kiefer, Christy Krames, Michael Kress-Russick, Scott Leighton, Cassio Lynm, Michael Linkinhoker, Kimberly Martens and Linda Nye.

"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.
