UAPB Art Department exhibit showing works of Jan Copeland and John Newman


The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Art Department will feature an exhibit showing the works of Jan Copeland and John Newman in the Leedell Moorehead-Graham Fine Arts Gallery.

The reception will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. Thursday. The exhibit is free and open to the public. The works will be on view until Sunday, Nov. 27.

The ceramic work of Jan Copeland, known as “Raku,” is a Japanese firing technique done by taking a red, glowing hot pot from the fire or kiln and placing it into a combustible area filled with saw dust, dried leaves, paper and other materials.

The paintings by John Newman, a retired art professor, feature the figure to capture the human condition.
