Susan Schwalb, who is credited with a renaissance in silverpoint and who was an inspiration to Arkansas silverpoint artist Marjorie Williams-Smith, will give a talk tonight at 6 p.m. in the Fine Arts Building (Room 161) of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. 

And thanks to sponsorship by the Windgate Foundation, Arkansas artists will get the opportunity to take workshop with Schwalb for free from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 18. Workshop participants will use silver and copper on a variety of drawing surfaces and grounds. For questions about the workshop email artworks@ualr.edu or call Williams-Smith at 501-569-3591.

How important is Schwalb's work? It's in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum, the Brooklyn Museum, the National Gallery and the British Museum. 

In celebration of silverpoint, Hearne Fine Art Gallery and Greg Thompson Fine Art Gallery are jointly hosting the 2015 National Silverpoint Invitational, "Drawing with Silverpoint," May 6 to June 27. Public receptions are slated for 5-9 p.m. May 8 at Hearne and 5-9 p.m. May 15 at Thompson.
