Petition
For Art
Dropped
By RON IIERRON
Kernel Staff Writer
A group of University art students, planning to petition Arts
and Sciences College Dean Paul
Nagel concerning alleged grievances in the Art Department,
withdrew their five-poipetition
early this afternoon.
Prior to the petition withdrawal, Professor Richard B.
Freeman, head of the art department, reacted to the complaints
this morning saying, "It will re
fleet on them (those who wrote
the petition) because of their ignorance. They should have seen me
or a faculty member first."
Withdrawal of the petition,
one of its authors stated, was due
to the document's "basically unofficial" nature.
Professor Freeman said lie had
no idea who had brought up the
petition, and blamed it on a

pieces to come to the University
for a long time.
"The Bald Soprano" aiuf
"Jack, or the Submission" are
entirely student produced and
mark the beginning of a new
group of players this season.
"The Bald Soprano," whose!
title came from a slip of the!
tongue, is easily earmarked as
the superior production and for
a number of reasons.
The most obvious one is that
it is simply a better play than
"Jack," an early Ionesco work
which lacks the direction of purpose and concentration of "The
Bald Soprano." A theme of both
plays is the reduction of the
common place and conventional
to the absurd.

If you've ever wanted to lose

prints now offer you the perfect
opportunity.
The

has sole command of the 8th
annual graphics art show which
opened at the Fine Arts Gallery
last Sunday.
"Craphics '66" is a first in
more ways than one. This is the
first time the UK art department
has hosted a one-ma- n
graphics
show, and it is the first one-ma-n
show for Fiorini in the U.S.
Perhaps the most striking
feature of the exhibit is its tremendously evocative quality
both with respect to mood and
imagination. The subdued, yet
varied, colors and the faintly
suggestive images encourage and
stimulate the viewer rather than
limit him.
Fiorini is one of the world's
great masters in the art of
His exhibit offers ample
proof of this fact, and shows
clearly that he is a versatile and
highly creative artist. His collection not only includes aqua
tints and woodcuts, but intaglios

"Jack" Is concerned with a
young man surrounded by a delightfully grotesque family who
gradually succeed in wearing
away his sense of humanity until
he is reduced to an animalistic
grotesque himself. At the same
time, the play is a spoof on the
ridiculousness of language as
when Jack's father exclaims
Truth has only two sides, but
the third side is best."
But in "The Bald Soprano" .
.
Ionesco has carried off a similar
stunt in satirizing not only the
conventional but the British as
well. The play is more closely
knit with four principal characters and two supporting roles.
With a superb satyrical knife,
Ionesco draws and quarters the
"middle class morality"
of
Shaw's Pygmalian.
The play is brought to the
utterly absurd when the dialogue
becomes a string of cliches
