| ||Three's a Crowd Exhibition at sUgAR Gallery
3:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Off Campus - The sUgAR Gallery
Fayetteville, Arkansas— sUgAR, The University of Arkansas Student Art Gallery is proud to present Three’s a Crowd, an exhibition of Ceramics-based work by artists working within post-baccalaureate positions at the University of Arkansas’ Ceramics department. Artists within this exhibition include Grant Gustafson, Katie Sleyman and Ashley Atterberry. Three’s a Crowd will be on view from November 6 – 26.
Grant Gustafson received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Ambitious for future opportunities, he plans to use this first year of his post-baccalaureate position as a source of dedication to developing bodies of artwork and planning his next career steps. Gustafson searches for the line between abundance and excess as he draws inspiration from mid 17th Century Dutch Painters’ still lives and theories that the “ornate still lives.” Questioning whether something so beautiful can become repulsive, Gustafson creates large-scale ceramic objects with luscious, glossy glazes to convey such ideas.
Katie Sleyman received her Bachelors of Arts in Studio Art from the University of Mary Washington in Virginia. Within her second year of the post-baccalaureate position, Sleyman has used opportunities of time, resources, and environment to explore themes of ownership and quality through functional and sculptural objects. She plans to use the resulting portfolio for applications to future endeavors such as graduate schools and residencies. Sleyman’s current work consists of a series of porcelain press-on nails, using the surfaces of nails as a perfectly refined canvas. Driven by a fixation of process and acute attention to detail, Sleyman strives for these nail pieces to become playful, covetable, impractical and consumable objects.
Ashley Atterberry graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Ceramics from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. Within her second year of the post-baccalaureate position, Atterbery has continued developing a body of work to explore the connections between objects and emotions, using this work for residency applications in the future. Influenced by comic books and graffiti, Atterberry’s work is an abstraction of her autobiography and emotional narrative. She strives for aspects of nonsense and depth as each series of work reflects current life events. Pulling the viewer back and forth between two-dimensional and three-dimensional forms, Atterberry takes advantage of bold lines, flat surfaces, bodily guts and figurative characters.
The sUgAR gallery is an interdepartmental exhibition space featuring the visual research of students, faculty, and visiting lecturers from the Department of Art and Fay Jones School of Architecture representing the Departments of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Interior Design. sUgAR is made possible by the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Art, the Fay Jones School of Architecture, and the University of Arkansas’ Facilities Management.

| ||"Resplendent" exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
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.

| ||Steven L. Anderson Design Center Dedication & Vol Walker Hall Rededication
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
The Fay Jones School of Architecture will celebrate the completion of a construction project more than three years in the making on Thursday, Sept. 12. The renovated Vol Walker Hall and the new addition, the Steven L. Anderson Design Center, will be rededicated and dedicated, respectively, at a 4:30 p.m. on the west side of the addition.
The campus community is invited to join the school in this celebration.
Scheduled speakers include Chancellor G. David Gearhart; Ethel Goodstein-Murphree, interim dean of the Fay Jones School; Steven L. Anderson, president of the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation; Katie Anderson, Steve Anderson’s daughter and a 2012 Fay Jones School graduate with a Bachelor of Interior Design; and Brandon Bibby, a fifth-year architecture student.
The 34,320-square-foot design center addition is made from limestone panels, steel, architectural concrete, Arkansas white oak and glass. Added to the 56,635 square feet in Vol Walker Hall, the total space in the building is now 90,955 square feet. According to current estimates, the project cost was a little more than $36.6 million. About 54 percent of that total went toward the renovation of Vol Walker Hall, with about 46 percent going toward the addition.
This state-of-the-art facility – which includes several design studios, a computer lab, a design shop, a lecture hall, a securable exhibition gallery, student and faculty lounge areas, and a green roof – will help enhance and expand the top-notch education already provided by the school’s faculty and administration.
Vol Walker Hall was built in 1935 as the university’s library. Since 1968, it has served as home to the architecture school, though some programs of the school have been located in other campus facilities during that time. The renovated historic building plus the significant addition allows the school, for the first time, to accommodate the faculty and students of all three disciplines – architecture, landscape architecture and interior design – along with support staff, in a shared space.
