The University of Arkansas Student Gallery, sUgAR, will host an opening reception for the exhibition, Material Spaces, from 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday, March 9, in sUgAR Gallery, located at 1 East Center on the downtown Fayetteville Square. This exhibition will be on display through April 6 with open gallery hours on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This exhibit looks at the translation from idea to drawing to model through materiality by students in the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design department of architecture. Architects don't physically make buildings but instead make physical simulacra of buildings and building environments using both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional representations. The material choices and their assembly effect the expression of the maker's pure idea. Looking at the material spaces between idea and building reveals just how unlike either idea or building the representation of building is. The show explores the way an idea about a building can be conveyed through multiple media and technologies of representation. The exhibit includes work from beginning design students in their first year to advanced students completing their fifth year of study.

Organized by Winifred E. Newman with support from the faculty of the Department of Architecture and the Fay Jones Exhibition team. Assistant Curator: David Sweere.

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 and Design 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.
