  • 'WHITENOISE': Warren Criswell work at UCA.
The new year gets off to a lively start in Conway when the University of Central Arkansas’s Baum Gallery mixes it up with three contemporaneous shows by Arkansas artists, three Southern fine art photographers and a master class installation guided by a New Jersey conceptual artist. “Idea to Image” will feature work in all media by Arkansas artists George Chambers, Warren Criswell, Nancy Dunaway, Brenda Keech, Cathy Siri Nugent, Dominique Simmons, Aj Smith and Michael Warrick. As the name of the show suggests, the exhibit will attempt to illustrate the process of artist creation. Artists will include statements on how they work and items from their studios that inspire them or symbolize their current thinking along with their pieces in the show. “Focal Points: Contemporary Southern Photography” will include Kate Breakey’s gelatin prints from her series, “Small Deaths,” of once-living things; O. Rufus Lovett’s “Weeping Mary” series of portraits from a small east Texas town, and Thom Bennett’s distorted plastic camera shots that make up his “Mythology of Mardi Gras.” New Jersey photographer Sandy Skoglund will work with university students to create an installation in Gallery III; Skoglund will later make Cibachrome photos of the installation, making art from art. Skoglund’s known for her bright send-ups of suburbia. All three exhibits run Jan. 20 to Feb. 24. A reception will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. opening day in the Fireplace Room of McCastlain Hall.
