Event Image Investigation of Person, Place & Space Exhibition
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Main Campus - (FNAR) Fine Arts

The University of Arkansas Department of Art is pleased to announce a group exhibition Investigation of Person, Place, and Space by senior photography and ceramic students. The exhibition will be on display from December 12, 2014 - January 16, 2015 in the Fine Arts Center Gallery. The Department of Art will host a reception on January 16th at the Fine Arts Center Gallery at 5:30 pm.

The exhibition highlights the work of students in professional development courses and represents a variety of approaches to photography and ceramics. Students enrolled learn how to engage in both the fine art and professional markets by preparing a cohesive body of work, creating a website to showcase their work, and managing a successful career in the contemporary art world. The exhibition includes the work of Kris Johnson, Paula Martin, Raven McCarty, and Stephanie Wehmeyer.

 Johnson uses a dry plate process to document conversations with individuals, retaining the photograph as an artifact of the event. In the final image, it is not the words spoken during the eight-minute capture that remains significant, but the document of the experience. Martin's work investigates urban spaces, focusing on geometrical shapes and repeated lines that calm the chaos in the city. McCarty's work investigates cultural identity, where she explores the social norms and rules that determine individual identity. Wehmeyer's photographs are a visual sequence of overlapping frames investigating the relationship between a girl and her environment. The black-and-white pinhole effect draws the eye into this relationship with minimal distractions.

Event Image "Resplendent" exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Main Campus - (FNAR) Fine Arts

In Resplendent, the use of organic systems and visual sequences merge to explore the manner in which pattern may be realized. Delicate structures executed by each artist further investigate the relationship between material and image, while tantalizing the viewer with exquisite and often obsessive fabrication. Moreover, a landscape unique in the topography of material and form reveals a profound relationship with process— one that is both sensual and visceral.

Main Campus - (ARKU) Arkansas

University Programs will host an exhibit by Dr. Daina Taimina,

Hyperbolic Crochet, in the Anne Kittrell Art Gallery, October 1-27, 2013.  There will be a reception on Friday, October 11, from 6:30- 8:00 p.m. in the Gallery and the lecture at 7:00 p.m. in the Union Theatre.

Dr. Daina Taimina, Professor of Mathematics at Cornell University, will exhibit crochet models of hyperbolic planes. In 1997, she created a crochet model of hyperbolic space that allows one to tangibly explore this type of geometry. She went on to write the book “Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes”. It explains the histories of both hyperbolic planes and crocheting, along with many other parts of art, science, and math. The book and the Hyperbolic Crochet allow one to visualize these extensively different subjects, math and art, in a whole new way. Dr. Taimina will speak on Art and Mathematics on October 11 at 7 p.m. in the Union Theatre.

Terahertz Dynamics and Control in Complex Materials

Dr. Richard Averitt
Associate Professor
Department of Physics and Boston University Photonics Center
Boston University, Boston Massachusetts

The past decade has seen enormous advances in materials and spectroscopy spanning from classical to quantum physics. On the classical front, metamaterials are artificial composites with unique electromagnetic properties that derive from their sub-wavelength structure. Metamaterials enable new ways to control light with negative refractive index and cloaking as two examples of considerable interest. Moving to the quantum realm, correlated electron materials exhibit fascinating phenomena ranging from superconductivity to metal-insulator transitions. Many of these materials exhibit colossal changes to small perturbations, which includes electromagnetic excitation. This opens up exciting possibilities such as photoinduced phase transitions with a goal to create metastable states with unique properties. Following an introduction to this research field, I will show examples of our work using picosecond terahertz pulses to probe and control matter including our recent demonstration of a metamaterial enhanced electric field initiated insulator-to-metal transition in vanadium dioxide.

Zeta Tau Alpha to host Pink the Rink with University of Arkansas Ice Hockey Team The Zeta Tau Alpha chapter at the University of Arkansas is excited to host this year’s Pink the Rink hockey game with the University of Arkansas School of Law and Razorback Ice Hockey Team on Friday, October 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Jones Center for Families in Springdale, AR. In association with the University of Arkansas School of Law, ZTA and Razorback Hockey are working to fight breast cancer and spread education and awareness. In addition the Law School will put on a silent auction prior to the game at 6:00 p.m. All proceeds raised during the event will be donated to the ZTA Foundation’s Survivor Recognition Program. Among other things, the Survivor Recognition Program works with Race for the Cure across the country to provide the signature pink T-shirts and caps for participants to wear during the race. It also provides pink "In Memory Of" and "In celebration Of" back signs for participants to wear during Race for the Cure events so they may race in honor of a friend or loved one. Finally, the Survivor Recognition Program provides an educational item for each Race Participant, such as the ZTA/Komen breast health awareness cards. ZTA members will distribute pink ribbons to all fans at the game and will be selling limited Think Pink Arkansas Razorback t-shirts. A breast cancer survivor will participate in the ceremonial puck drop at the beginning of the game. Members of the team will be honoring this fight by wearing pink socks, pink laces, and using pink athletic tape. "The Razorback Hockey program is excited for our partnership with Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority and our continuing work with the Law School,” said Head Coach Brian Gallini. He added, “this is expected to be our largest Pink the Rink fundraiser with standing room only attendance." In the week leading up to the game, ZTA will also host Think Pink!® Week on the University of Arkansas campus to raise more awareness. On Wednesday, October 2 the chapter will host a Pink Pancake lunch at the chapter house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for $5. Thursday, October 3 the chapter will have a Country Can Cure concert at the Greek Theater at 6:30 p.m. with artist Kyle Park for $15. The week concludes on Friday night with Pink the Rink at the Jones Center for Families in Springdale, AR. “This is the first year Zeta has had the opportunity to work along side the Razorback Hockey team in the fight against breast cancer and we couldn’t be more excited,” said Kim Elliot, ZTA Philanthropy Chair. Elliot added, “we hope to see lots of fans on Friday night wearing their pink in support of breast cancer awareness and education.”
