Opening Tuesday at Fayetteville Walton: Bethany Springer




Bethany Springer, a professor of art at the University of Arkansas, opens a show of her mixed media work tomorrow, Jan. 18, at the Walton Arts Center.

The exhibit, "Watermarks," "offers a glimpse of a promising young artist who works with materials and ideas that speak to our current climate of accelerating technological change and globalization," the Walton press release says. I couldn't get a larger image of "Mirage" above, but the digital print was described for me this way: "Desktop wallpaper scenes are reflected in six dozen Joan of Arc sterling silver place knives (with hollow handles)." UPDATE: The artist sent me this larger-resolution image.

The exhibit is part of the Walton's "Signature Projects" series of work by established and emerging artists. Sculpture by Anita Huffington opened the series.

A reception is set for 4:30-7 p.m. on Feb. 3, when downtown Fayetteville celebrates First Thursday.
