Head over to UALR's Fine Arts Building today at 5:30 p.m. to hear artist talks and later mingle and admire work by David Bailin ("Revision, Missing, Listen, Light, Fly: Drawings by David Bailin") and MA candidates Laura Raborn and Sandra Sell ("Recent Work") at 6:30-8:30 p.m. receptions for the artists. 

Bailin's work, in Gallery II until May 30, includes his larger-than-life charcoal, oil, pastel and sometimes coffee drawings, works featuring a lone male office worker in spare surroundings. The LA Times has described the work as portraying "absurd working conditions we associate with the Kafkaesque — bureaucratic cul-de-sacs, depersonalizing cubicles, psychic suffocation." Bailin is one of Arkansas's finest working artists. 

Raborn and Sells will talk about their work in Room 151. Raborn has won several awards for her representational paintings, including the Wilma and Jack Diner Purchase Award at UALR and the Juror Award at the Irene Rosenzweig Biennial Juried Exhibition at the Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas in Pine Bluff.

  • ACLU asks court to enjoin antiabortion bills

    Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union asked Judge Kristine Baker to grant an injunction against four laws passed this year by the General Assembly that would: * Make abortion after 15 weeks riskier by outlawing what the medical profession considers the safest procedure, dilation and evacuation; * Require doctors to inform local police when an abortion performed on a teenager age 14-16 absent any indication of abuse and that police create a record of the teenager's abortion and be provided the fetal remains; * Require abortion providers to ask women seeking an abortion if they know the sex of the fetus, and, if they do, obtain all of their previous obstetrical records to determine if they have a "history of aborting fetuses" of a certain sex, as the lawyer for the state said today in court. * Require notification of a woman's partner — or abuser — that she intends to have an abortion, ostensibly so they can agree on the disposition of the remains of the fetus.
