  • VESSEL: A Bruhl table.

Easily disassembled furniture with a Bauhaus flair by John Bruhl is on exhibit in the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s Fine Arts Center.

Bruhl, a student at UALR before graduating from the Minneapolis College of Design, said the furniture not only marries form and function, but reflects society’s mobility. The work can be taken apart and put back together with hand tools.

Included in the exhibit is a glass-topped table supported by wood joined in a boat-like design and curving chairs of wood and fiberglass.

The show runs through July 28 in Gallery II.

In Gallery III, on the second floor of the Fine Arts Center, works from UALR’s permanent collection, which is housed at the School of Law, go up June 20. They include paintings by Warren Criswell, Helene Herzbrun and Chris Hughes, drawings by Douglass Darrocott, Barbara Miles, Melanie Chapin and Jason Almand, selections from the “Feelin’ Groovy” exhibit of rock and roll posters and other graphic work, and photography by Beverly Buys, Thomas Amettis, Gary Cawood, John Banasiak and Jan Saudek.

You’ll need all three hours to hit the venues in Conway’s second Artwalk, set for 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. the day this paper is published (Thursday, June 15). Two- and three-dimensional works by Conway artists will be featured in Simon Park, the Faulkner County Museum, Pictures Et Cetera, the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce, The Art School, Vintage to Vogue, Carmen’s Art and Antiques, Bob’s Grill, Ed Camp’s Men’s Store, Mike’s Place, Pia’s Restaurant, Baker Drug, the Arkansas Arts Beautification Society, Something Brewin’ and the Faulkner County Library.

Floyd W. Martin, chair of UALR’s art history department, will give a slide presentation on Picasso at 6:30 p.m. June 20 at the Arkansas Arts Center. Martin will focus on Picasso’s work in Paris from 1904 to 1940. A reception will be held before the talk at 6 p.m. in the Lecture Hall lobby.
