Silverpoint by Marjorie Williams-Smith in "Nocturne"
An exhibition of Marjorie Williams-Smith's
silverpoint drawings on dark ground at UALR is called "Nocturne"
to denote the mystery and mood of her work, flowers in shadow. Maybe you read about Williams-Smith's collaboration with composer Dr. Robert Boury
of UALR in creating some of these works.
Williams-Smith also uses copper in the drawings, which, because they are drawn in metal, will tarnish over time to create a new tint in the lines — living drawings. The exhibit runs through Nov. 24 in Gallery II; Boury will perform at a reception for his UALR colleague from 5-7 p.m. Nov. 16.
