2015 BFA Exhibition in Fine Arts Center Gallery
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Main Campus - (FNAR) Fine Arts

The University of Arkansas Department of Art is pleased to announce the 2015 BFA Exhibition featuring work by students in painting, sculpture, photography, and ceramics. The exhibition will be on display from March 2 – March 12, 2015 in the Fine Arts Center Gallery. The Department of Art will host a reception on Friday, March 6th at the Fine Arts Center Gallery at 5:30 pm.

The exhibition highlights the work of students from all disciplines, and represents a variety of approaches to making artwork. Over the course of their studies, students learn how to engage in both the fine art and professional markets by preparing a cohesive body of work. The exhibition includes the work of Beau Barnes, Zoe Eagan, Samantha Hussey, Kris Johnson, Sarah McCormick, Colleen Poplawski, and Michael Ramirez.

Barnes’ ceramic forms and creatures are inspired by popular culture and science fiction. Eagan operates within a feminist framework of gender neutrality, with a focus on the ‘pink epidemic’. Her ceramic works mock, embody, and challenge the status quo of a gendered society. Hussey’s interest in the underwater landscape and aquatic creatures are reflected in her sculptures and projections. 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. McCormick’s sculptures navigate the landscape of childhood and familial experience. Her focus is on the inconsistencies of remembrance that frame our perceptions. Poplawski’s landscape paintings reflect our relationship with change and address the human condition. Ramirez’s prints relay memories, experiences, and moment in time. The final product is an image that intends to concretely materialize an experience or feeling, but has ultimately gained or lost information.

Tournées Film Festival: French Films on Campus
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Main Campus - (OZAR) Ozark Hall

DANS LA MAISON (IN THE HOUSE), François Ozon, 2012, Comedy/Drama/Mystery, Running time 105’, Rating: R FREE ADMISSION ENGLISH SUBTITLES Liberally adapted from Juan Mayorga’s play The Boy in the Last Row, François Ozon’s piquant and playful In the House marks a return to the anarchic adolescent protagonists of the director’s early films, such as Criminal Lovers (1999), whose uncontrollable desires are inextricably linked with destruction and mayhem. Sixteen-year-old Claude (Ernst Umhauer) stirs the interest of his literature teacher, Germain (Fabrice Luchini), who’s perilously close to pedagogical burnout, with a well-crafted essay for a prosaic assignment about “My Last Weekend.” Claude details a Saturday spent helping a classmate with his math homework at his pal’s home; the budding wordsmith is intrigued by his friend’s close-knit family, particularly his mother (Emmanuelle Seigner). Germain, a failed writer whose sole novel was published twenty years ago, begins meeting with Claude after class, critiquing the boy’s further chapters about his infiltration of his schoolmate’s snug fortress. These ongoing installments Germain eagerly shares with his gallerist wife, Jeanne (Kristin Scott Thomas). In this sharp inquiry into the power of narrative, Ozon brings up a number of fascinating topics: what it means to be an artist and, perhaps more important, what it means to be an audience. The Tournées Festival was made possible with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S., the Centre National de la Cinématographie et de l’Image Animée, and the Franco-American Cultural Fund. We are also thankful to the Florence Gould Foundation, Campus France USA, highbrow entertainment, and the Franco-American Cultural Fund.

Kill/Shot by Rachel Washington
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Main Campus - (KIMP) Kimpel Hall

A professor is forced to confront her own motivations after she kills a student - a shooter who has already killed four other students.  Does that make her a hero or a criminal?  See this fully staged production of Rachel Washington’s play, previously seen at Hot Off the Page: New Play Festival.  


A 3rd year MFA Playwright, she approaches writing from a very pragmatic style,
awakening the discussions of institutional hierarchy, mental illness, homosexuality and gun control in America.
