Signals & Spheres

June 1 - July 30 2016

Exhibiting artists include Wanbli Gamache, Jay Myers, Ashley Lewis and Kalli Lum.

Signals & Spheres presents works that experiment with topics of degeneration, identity, and the creation of an animated universe. Following the mission of sUgAR Vision, this exhibition was presented on the Internet and on television programs through a collaboration between sUgAR Vision and Public Access Television. sUgAR Vision functions as an online  platform mimicking the proliferation of Internet images, videos, and news-feed, by posting streams of relational content. It was created as a side project to the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville's student-run gallery, sUgAR.

Temporarily Indefinite

October 2 - 29, 2014

Exhibiting artists include Zach Dougherty (Hateplow), James Kerr (Scorpion Dagger), Ruitong Zhao, Drew Krasner and David Rusanow.

In a multitude of ways, these artists challenge typically accepted modes of thought, capture traditional demonstrations of heritage and display the use of either permanent or ephemeral materials. The artists approach these topics through meditations of poetry, film, music and gif art. The group of works in Temporarily Indefinite were aligned with sub-themes of the a newly released ART 21 Season 7 Film, Legacy.  Coinciding with this exhibition was a public screening of the film Legacy and a panel discussion consisting of University of Arkansas Historians from the Art and Humanities departments and Art Professionals from the Fayetteville area. The exhibition and special programming took place in the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville's student-run gallery, sUgAR. It was co-curated with Danny Baskin.

Between States

March 6 - April 2, 2014

Exhibiting artists include Sam King & Matthew Murphy.

Between States is an exhibition that does exactly what it says, hover in a place between the realm of painting and sculpture. King and Murphy integrate their paintings into new forms, shapes, colors and textures as a reflection of their working studio process. Both apply sweeps of geometry and vivid colors to their surfaces in a way that responds to specific moments in time, their favorite songs or a mood in the atmosphere. Coinciding with this exhibition was an public Artist Talk presented by King & Murphy. The exhibition and special programming took place in the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville's student-run gallery, sUgAR. It was co-curated with Jonathan Cromer.
