Geoff Winningham
, whose excellent book "Of the Soil: Photographs of Vernacular Architecture and Stories of Changing Times in Arkansas" was reviewed in the Arkansas Times in October, will give a talk tonight at 6 p.m. at the Arkansas Arts Center as part of the Architecture and Design Network speaker series. His talk is called "Working in the Eye of the Sun: Photographing the Vernacular Architecture of Arkansas."

Winningham traveled Arkansas in the 1980s with UA architecture professor Cy Sutherland recording houses, barns, schools, general stores, silos and other historic structures, many of which no longer stand. His book includes many of the photographs he took then and interviews with people who knew the stories behind the structures.

Winningham teaches photography at Rice University, where he holds the Lynette S. Aubrey Chair in the Humanities. He has received two Guggenheim fellowships and has produced documentary films and books about Texas and Mexican culture. 

There will be a reception at 5:30 before the talk in the lecture hall of the Arts Center.

    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.
