“Ready to Wear: Paintings by Lisa Stroud,” a collection of 31 paintings, explores the beauty of womankind, its challenges and eccentricities, using the Little Black Dress as her wise, bantering, and sometimes, whimsical narrator. More importantly, her artwork supports women and encourages them to always believe in themselves. Her exhibition could not be more timely in celebrating and championing women, considering that March is National Women’s History Month.

Ready to Wear: Paintings by Lisa Stroud will run March 17 - May 31, 2022.

The Betty Ray McCain Art Gallery can be accessed M-F 10am-2pm and during performance hours.

Growing up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Rector never expected to find himself immersed in the
music scene. Though he spent his childhood learning piano and eventually picking up
guitar in his teen years as he made the transition to singing and songwriting, Rector was
not truly serious about his music until he studied at the University of Arkansas. It was
there that Rector released his first self-titled EP, launching his music career as he began
playing live shows. By the time he graduated, Rector had released two full-length
albums and was ready to make the move to Nashville in order to dive head-first into the
music industry.

Now, Rector has made a name for himself as both an artist and songwriter. He’s
released seven studio albums, including Brand New (2015) which peaked in the Top 10
on the Billboard 200 and Magic (2018) which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard
Americana/Folk Albums chart. Last year, he used his experience to be an all-star
mentor on ABC hit show American Idol alongside Ryan Tedder, Jewel, Jason Aldean,
Jimmie Allen, Joss Stone among many others. Rector’s music has been used in over
100 television and film placements, including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Pretty
Little Liars, American Idol, among others, and his sold-out amphitheater shows have
landed him television performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, the TODAY Show,
and Live! with Kelly and Ryan. When the pandemic hit, Rector took the time to pour into
his music as much as possible and has since announced his upcoming album, The Joy
Of Music, is scheduled for release on March 11, 2022.

Wildly acclaimed, Grammy-winning artist Flume confirms Stage 1 of the Flume World Tour today, with North American dates kicking off in April including Chicago, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and two nights at Red Rocks in addition to previously announced lineup-topping sets at Coachella, Governor’s Ball and Bonnaroo. Supporting acts include Floating Points, Channel Tres, Tinashe, Magdalena Bay and more.

Artist pre-sale tickets go on sale February 15 at 10 a.m. local, with general on sale beginning February 18 at 10 a.m.local—sign up for pre-sale tickets at https://flumemusic.com/ and watch the tour trailer here.

Flume’s new LP Palaces is out May 20 on Future Classic and Transgressive—pre-order/pre-save it here. He recently shared the album’s lead single and video, Say Nothing” featuring MAY-A.

Palaces began to take shape when Flume returned to his native Australia after struggling to write music in Los Angeles at the beginning of the pandemic. Settling in a coastal town in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Flume quickly found the inspiration he needed through reconnecting with the nature around him—the rolling hills, walking around barefoot, the green color the sky turns before a big storm, growing and eating his own vegetables, the smell of rain. He and his neighbor and longtime collaborator, the visual artist Jonathan Zawada, became fascinated by the local wildlife, in particular the birds, collecting field recordings that ultimately worked their way into the album. As Flume continued to forge a strong connection to his surroundings, the album he wanted to make started to form, eventually adopting a title to properly highlight the luxury and magic of the natural world. Palaces is his most confident, mature and uncompromising work to date, a true testament to nurturing the relationships that make us whole and bring us peace.

The album features a host of vocalists and collaborators, its cast list spanning new and household names from around the world—breakout U.S. star Caroline Polachek, British polymath-icon Damon Albarn, Spain’s Vergen Maria, France’s Oklou and fellow Australian Kučka, who returns following her standout turn on Skin.

Flume (born Harley Streten) rose to prominence as a teenager with his scene-starting, self-titled debut in 2012, which topped the ARIA charts, garnered four spots in triple j’s Hottest 100 and sold out a massive Australian 40,000 cap tour. In the two years that followed, Flume established himself as an international sensation thanks to his compelling live show (debuting at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Reading & Leeds and many others) and skillful remixes of high-profile acts. He released his second LP Skin in 2016, which reached the top 10 on the U.S. Billboard Charts, top 20 in the U.K. and all across Europe, topped the ARIA Chart on release and reinforced Flume’s status as an inventive, boundary-pushing producer while continuing to expand his reach.

Later that year, Flume took home his first Grammy Award for Best/Dance Electronic Album, achieved Platinum accreditation in multiple territories around the world, topped triple j’s Hottest 100, won seven ARIAs, an APRA Award for Songwriter of the Year and sold over 300,000 tickets globally across a sold out 59-date world tour.

In 2019, Flume’s second Best Dance/Electronic Album Grammy nomination for his acclaimed Hi This Is Flume mixtape capped off a monumental year for the producer. 2019 also saw the release of a collaborative EP, Quits, with rapper Reo Cragun and singles Let You Know” with London Grammar and Rushing Back” with Vera Blue.

He went on to tour the globe with stops at festivals including Lollapalooza, Osheaga, Outside Lands, Japan’s Summersonic, Italy’s C2C and more. Streten shared his only new music of the last two years, “The Difference” with Toro y Moi, in 2020 to widespread acclaim.

To mark the new album announcement, a fresh line of merchandise is available for purchase here, alongside special physical editions of Palaces available for pre-order now, including vinyl, limited-edition deluxe CD (with initial orders signed by the artist), standard CD and cassette.
