Auctions to benefit Baum, Centers.

BID ON IT: Jim Volkert's "Adjustable Manet Fragment."
  • BID ON IT: Jim Volkert's "Adjustable Manet Fragment."
The University of Central Arkansas’s 10-year-old Baum Gallery is auctioning online, at www.uca.edu/cfac/baum, paintings, pottery and 3-D art from its “10x10x10 for the Baum” show to raise funds for its exhibition program. Juror Brian Young, curator at the Arkansas Arts Center, awarded the top prizes to three of the 44 works (all of which fall into the 10-by-10-by-10-inch dimensional requirement): The $300 Grand Prize to David Mudrinich of Russellville for his pastel drawing “Overnight,” the $200 Excellence Award to Robby Burton of UCA for his turned bowl, “Stitches,” and the $100 Honorable Mention prize to Fred Bowers of Batesville for his acrylic painting, “Anam No. 1.” The works are on exhibit in the gallery, in McCastlain Hall, through Oct. 28. Early into the auction, some cheapskate was trying to get the $95 value Mudrinich painting for $50. Likewise, a tiny canvas hanging from a brass frame by Jim Volkert had a $75 bid; the value is $200. For shame! Those and other bids will undoubtedly go up before the auction closes at 5 p.m. Oct. 27. Artists donated their works to the fund-raiser. Besides the winners, they include Robin Hazard-Bishop, Roger Bowman, Janice Crummer, Marvin Crummer, Nancy Dunaway, Lois Giorgis, Jonathan A. Glenn, Kelly Haggard, Neal Harrington, Tammy Harrington, Linda Luyet, Don Marr, Bryan Massey, Beverly McLarty, Keith Melton, Sheila Parsons, Donna Pinckley, Linda Ray, Barbara Satterfield, Amanda Singh, Patricia Singh, Liz Smith, Matthew Smith, Barbara Teague, Chris Valle, Suzanne de Shazo Waggoner, Michael Warrick, Kenna Westerman, Volkert and Jeff Young. Bids can be emailed or faxed (501-450-3570); more information is on the website. The exhibit and auction are sponsored by the Friends of the Gallery. Gallery hours are 1-5 p.m. Sunday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with extended hours until 8 p.m. on Thursday. Also at the Baum: “A Glimpse into Echizen Ceramics,” featuring iron-rich stoneware made by Japanese artists; “View From Here: Contemporary Russian and American Screenprints,” prints made by an artists’ collaborative during the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Union, including a print by American William Christenberry; and “American Impressionist Paintings from the Collection of Dr. William Amos.” The latter opens Oct. 6. All go down Oct. 27. Beverly McLarty and Sheila Parsons have also donated paintings to the Centers for Youth and Families’ annual Splatters live and silent auction fund-raiser, which kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 9, at the Pleasant Valley Country Club. Others among the 50 artists who’ve donated work: Dennis McCann, Dixie Shelton, John Deering, V.L. Cox, Sterling Cockrill, Nancy Delamar, Jackie Fish, Mary Ann Stafford, Jason Gammel, Kitty Harvell and James Hayes. The event, described as an “auction of childish proportions,” will include dinner. Tickets are $45, and may be bought by calling 501-666-9436 or by e-mailing info@centersevents.com. On Monday, Oct. 10, the Centers’ Classic golf tournament will be played at Pleasant Valley. The last 20 years of Berthe Morisot’s career are highlighted in a new exhibit at the Brooks Museum in Memphis, “Berthe Morisot: An Impressionist and Her Circle,” opening Oct. 9. Morisot was the sole female founder of the Impressionist movement in the late 19th century in France. The exhibit features 75 paintings and drawings, including works by Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Edouard Manet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. The works are from the collection of Denis and Annie Rouart, which was bequeathed to the Musee Marmottan Monet in Paris. Only three museums in the U.S. are hosting the traveling exhibit. The museum is at 1934 Poplar.
