The galleries of the Fine Arts building at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock opened the new year with two major shows: the Faculty Biennial in Gallery I and sculpture by Michael Warrick in Gallery II. Artists whose work will appear in the faculty show include David Bailin, Bonnie Black, Win Bruhl, Gary Cawood, Tom Clifton, Brad Cushman, Thomas Fernandez, Leslie Mangiamele, Eric Mantle, Lisa Hanson Mantle, Missy McCormick, Catherine S. Nugent, Carey Roberson, Dominique Simmons, Aj Smith, Kathy Strause, Michael Warrick and Marjorie Williams-Smith. Works will include drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media, graphic design, photography, ceramics, sculpture, furniture and textiles. “Form and Texture in Bronze,” Warrick’s exhibit, features work the UALR professor completed during his recent sabbatical. Warrick says the work is inspired by objects he’s collected from nature, and he will include in the exhibit some of those objects — shells, petals, leaves, seed pods, vines, gypsum stones, quartz, moss, bark and coral. Warrick was one of the creators of sculpture in the Central High School Commemorative Garden and has done concept designs for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive Gateway and Streetscape Proposal. In 2004, he exhibited “Flora: Sculpture of the Natural World” at the U.S. Botanic Garden of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. The galleries are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The shows run through Feb. 15. Oval Gallery will host another Dress for Success fund-raiser, “Fine Art, Fine Wine,” a wine-tasting event with restaurateur Mark Abernathy, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Jan. 14. Tickets are $15. The event is held in conjunction with Oval’s “About Women” exhibit, sales from which also benefit the non-profit Dress for Success, which provides business dress for women entering the job market. The Arkansas Arts Council has launched “Art Lines Online,” a monthly e-newsletter that provides information on area exhibits, film showings, musical performances and other cultural events, as well as news articles pertinent to the arts. The Council’s 2005 fellowship winners are profiled, grant listings and their deadlines are offered and other programs and services are detailed. To sign up to receive the e-newsletter, go to arkansasarts.com.
