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.
