UCA’s Baum Gallery to Host Fall Senior Art Show

Conway Institute of Music

CONWAY — The Baum Gallery at the University of Central Arkansas will host its Fall BFA/BA Senior Exhibit from Friday, Nov. 1, to Monday, Dec. 16.

An opening reception for the event will be held Nov. 1 from 4-7 p.m. in the Baum Gallery, located in McCastlain Hall.

The exhibition is a requirement for students graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Art or a Bachelor of Arts in art.

“This exhibition is the culmination of their art education at UCA. Collectively, the work represents a cross section of the overall effort in the art department,” said Bryan W. Massey Sr., professor, and chair of UCA’s art department. “Working with the Baum Gallery, the exhibition also provides a museum venue for the students’ work to be seen both individually and in concert with the work of their peers.”

During this exhibition, graduating BFA/BA students work with the director of the Baum Gallery to install their work. This experience gives students the opportunity to show their work in a professional environment. This event also continues the Baum Gallery’s mission to promote contemporary art for the larger UCA and Conway communities.

Exhibiting student artists include:

  • Bachelor of Arts in art, fine art emphasis: Wes Hart, Michaela Overley, Grayson Ruple, and Anna Wagner
  • Bachelor of Arts in art: Jordan Cates, Madison Cox, Brooksie Morales, Lainey Necessary, Caleb Robbins, and Anna Neel

“This exhibition is an important tradition that a number of people in the UCA community enjoy visiting, and it also gives the majority of the students their first true museum venue,” said Brian Young, director of the Baum Gallery.

The Baum Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.

The Baum Gallery is focused on providing contemporary art to inspire UCA students. The gallery develops exhibitions and events that invite interaction and encourage dialogue about visual art.
